    “Green Onions” is still one of the greatest singles ever recorded. I heard Booker T on an interview not too long ago. He said that he’s never been able to exactly reproduce the sound and vibe of his playing on that record.

    Nice one Paul…Less than £12 post paid to UK!

  3. Paolo Meccano says:

    Thanks for the heads-up, Paul. Even with the postage, it’s a great deal.

  4. Mike says:

    This is out of print in the US. I guess it’s been reissued elsewhere or maybe never went out of print.. The cover picture is the same, but the background is white instead of a brownish background on the US version. Great set!

    And in the “customers also bought…” section, you can see that their Abbey Road tribute “McLemore Avenue” is given for 4.23€!!!!

  6. Matthias says:

    Got it! Thanks a lot, Paul! There were many great deal alerts the past few days (Miles Davis etc.).
