Faisal Jewell I love those Harmonica Riffs from Off The Wall by James Cotton. I think it's the Best Song in Vol. 2. Favorite track: Off The Wall.

Tim Mee What a stunning pair of albums (well four really as they’re doubles!). The sound quality is great and the whole think feels like a time tunnel to a cooler time. Magic Slim in particular was unknown to me but his performance here sent me seeking his other releases. Well done Third Man. Favorite track: I Feel So Good (I Wanna Boogie).
