Notes and Comments:
It is fantastic (I love the early stuff!). It has the best version of Tin Pan Alley that I have heard.
I do have Don't Mess With Texas and I like it a lot. It is an improvement over the commercial CD (IMHO). It IS more complete than Guitar Boogie (it contains a "cut" version of Texas Flood).
I only have this one and it sounds pretty good to me. I especially like the extra songs that are on it over "in the beginning."
I like the "Don't mess with texas" boot, but the best recording is a tape of the actual radio broadcast which has more tone than any of the boot CD's that have come out and more songs than Sony's release.
