It struck me how a man could get such harmony from six wires and a piece of wood - Larry Johnson, Port Townsend 98

a "search forum" or "tag" check is usually a wise move with artists like LH. :)

Long before Ace decided to release the RPM sessions themselves they initially licenced it to P-Vine in Japan who released a 29 track compilation entitled "Sings the Blues The Complete RPM Recordings" in 1998.The booklet contains lyric transcriptions by Chris Smith of all 28 vocal items...but a magnifying glass is required! For the cover they chose - wisely I think - one of the original album sleeves. :P
