Best of Blind Lemon Jefferson

Beware: Without listening to a preview I downloaded the one track I wanted to study ‘Bad Luck Blues’ (The last track listed -track 23?)) but instead got ‘See That my Grave is Kept Clean’ (track 1). Great track but not the one I wanted: bummer.
I later scrolled along the albums and found “Top 90” BLJ. 90 of his best for a tad under six quid. Great!

Conversely track 23 is listed as 'Bad Luck Blues' but is - you guessed it - 'See That My Grave is Kept Clean'. Every track is therefore wrongly listed except in the exact middle of the list, track 12, which is 'Matchbox Blues'. Poor show, iTunes!
