Beware Brother Beware of the incorrect track listing

"Only three stars because the track listing above is significantly different that what is now on this CD. The first 15 songs are now Five Guys Named Moe, Caldonia, Is You Or Is You Ain't My Baby, G.I. Jive, Open The Door Richard, Mop Mop, I Like Them Fat Like That, Stone Cold Dead In The Market, Barnyard Boogie, (I'm Gonna Move To The) Outskirts Of Town, You Can't Get That No More, Let The Good Times Roll, What's The Use Of Getting Sober, Every Man To His Own Profession, Reet Petite & Gone.I started listening to Louis when I became interested in finding the roots of rock & roll. As many of his best tracks were produced by Milt Gabler (who later produced Bill Haley) this root is an easy and enjoyable one to follow along, particularly the guitar licks. Listen to his songs while imagining how you would update them for todays standard drum bass guitars & keyboards band lineups.I bought this collection because I wanted the difficult to find "How High Am I". If you can afford the giant Complete Decca recordings get that. Otherwise the 5 disc JSP set can't be beat for price and quality; then check the track listings and song samples of the Complete Decca and look for one of the single disc (and probably cheap) collections to get any other particular songs you're after."
Great Stuff!!! Alternate Versions!!!! DIRT Cheap!!!!

"Just purchased this item new from an Amazon seller. Same title, same artwork, same Charly label, but this CD now contains ONLY the first 14 songs, all of which are V-Disc recordings, the same material as you'll find on the Louis Jordan V-Disc release by Collector's Choice. Not the seller's fault. I've contacted Amazon and requested that the update the product page. Proceed with caution."
