Lost recordings from an American Music legend

Billy is the oldest surviving Sun Records artist, and the African-American that released the most sides on Sun, the birthplace of rock and roll. After Sun, Billy went on to record for Chess and Vee-Jay. In the mid 1960's he started his own label, Tarpon Records and released the sides in this compilation. A few songs are re-worked versions of his hits, and I think in many cases, better than the originals! Sales of this release benefit Billy "The Kid" Emerson!
