The alternate take of 'alone in the night' by the Jones Boys is electrifying!


There are some errors on the track listing; there are 27 tracks, not 26 as stated on the CD, and some song titles / artists are incorrect. These errors are kindly mentioned in the notes of volume 2, and I've correctly tagged the files accordingly.

Volume 2 even better!
