    stinkin' intellectual property

    This IS a great collection. I just wish they hadn't taken off 2 of my very favorite tracks from the original collection: Elmore James' "Sunnyland Blues" and Otis Spann's "Bloody Murder." They were the last two tracks on the original, and seem to have disappeared here.
