I just received a sampler put out by Sony/Legacy for the J&R label to
celebrate J&R's 25th anniversary.  Robert Johnson's "Come On In My Kitchen" is
on it from the soon to be released remastered set.  Haven't had a chance to
compare this with the old, poorly mastered Complete RJ, but plan to do this
soon.  What I want to know is how many times do they expect us to keep buying
this stuff?  Why can't someone get it right the first time? But hey, that's

BTW - Got the sampler with my copy of Miles Davis/Gil Evans Complete Columbia
Studio Recordings (6 discs).  Only had a chance to listen to disc 1 so far,
but some mighty fine jazz here.
