"Sunny Boy Williamson's "Bluebird Recordings 1938" is a terrific CD . And it is definitely worth owning if you already have his "Bluebird Recordings 1937-1938" or his Bluebird Recordings 1939-1940, because it is really Volume II of those fine recordings. However, as I've painfully found out, TWICE, while the "1938 Bluebird Recordings" are listed USED on AMAZON at reasonable prices -- what two sellers actually wound up SENDING me was the 1937-1938 Bluebird Recordings CD. Why? Most likely they were confused because unfortunately Amazon is showing the incorrect picture under this listing. While the heading says "Bluebird Recordings 1938" and track listings are indeed from "Bluebird Recordings 1938" starting with the song "Honey Bee Blues" the picture is of "Bluebird Recordings 1937-1938" which starts with the song "Good Morning Little Schoolgirl." Further confusing things is the fact that the "1937-1938 Bluebird Recordings" CD appears no where else on the site. If you're scratching your head, join the club. Both recordings are out of print, but as I've found out TWICE, the 1937-1938 Recordings are a lot easier to come by -- and a fine place to start if you have neither. Come to think of it, both CDs are worth having (And I should know, I now have three!). But not for someone who already has one or the other. What's the solution? Amazon should, of course, list both CDs with the correct pictures and playlists to make it easy for sellers to figure out which one they have, but until they update the listing, SELLERS SHOULD TAKE THE INITIATIVE AND INCLUDE YEARS AND PLAY LISTS IN THEIR PRODUCT DESCRIPTION so buyers can tell if they are selling the 1938 Recordings or 1937-1938 Recordings. or even the 39-40 Recordings. Whew! Who said buying used CDs had to be easy."

"Actually, the problem is not really the picture, but the bar code numbers that Amazon uses for this product. Sellers must enter the bar code numbers and they AUTOMATICALLY end up in with Amazons listing that they associate with this bar code. Yes, the picture is incorrect and can cause problems with the buyers, but the reason sellers items get listed here is because the identification numbers they use are incorrect on Amazon. Clear as mud, right?"
Even more confusing...

"... is the fact that "The Bluebird Recordings 1938" has 18 tracks listed, online and on the tray. But there's 21 tracks!"
