Track A2 credited to R. Johnson, but actually written by Leroy Carr.

A small number were pressed, and there was a problem with the pressing that caused hiss, distortion, and channels dropping out through the entire record, which wasn't discovered until it had already been distributed to local record shops. Some copies were sold, but most were returned, and for reasons that probably had something to do with the limited commercial appeal of Johnny Young and the low budget nature of the label, BOB never re-pressed and re-distributed it. It's pretty unlistenable.
