(Monaural. With Let Me Die in My Footsteps, Talkin' John Birch Society Blues, Gamblin' Willie's Dead Man's Hand, and Rocks and Gravel, which may also be shown as Solid Gravel. We suggest verification of the above tracks by listening to the LP, rather than accepting the information printed on the label. In fact, some copies of the rare pressing have reissue labels. Identification numbers of this press are XLP-58717-1A and XLP-58718-1A. Covers listing the four deleted tracks are often sold separately for $100 to $150 – either empty or with a disc that does NOT have those tracks)
