The Paul Jones Collection Vol. 2: Love Me, Love My Friends

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
An expanded version of Jones' 1967 album Love Me, Love My Friends, with ten bonus tracks.

None are especially interesting, although it's a shock to hear him covering the Electric Prunes on "Sold to the Highest Bidder."
