It´s exciting with words like the 'Original sessions' and all neatly overdubbed. I really hope it means that even the original tapes that made up the original album is found. That album always sounded so flat and hopeless. When Bear Family came out with the unreleased stuff in the 80´s i heard 'Haunted House (extended version)' and the sound was 10 times better. That´s the way this album should have sounded to begin with.

An exciting release for sure. Can´t wait for the tracklist.

I agree, the outtakes had much better sound quality than the original album, and also generally the actual songs were better.... Revolutionary Man, When A Man Loves A Woman and Blueberry Hill from the original album are all strong contenders for my least favourite JLL recordings (if those 3 songs were replaced with Cry, Margie and Raining In My Heart the album would've been much better in my opinion). I've also never been keen on the 1973 studio version of 'Meat Man'.

Don´t expect too much "new" material.

The Locust Years CD box includes already 120 minutes of Southern Roots stuff !!!

This "new" Bear Family 2 CD has 124 minutes.

Interesting Peter! As Ulli suggested, maybe they've given track numbers to the in-between song chat.

Thanks PeterM for checking the running time, i also checked the old Bear Family lp box and noticed out of those 31 tracks mentioned before by Ulli, one of them tracks is a studio chatter. So very likely the 39 tracks is made up of these things here too.

Too bad, i really was excited of this release.

I don't think these are anything new, just part of the chat that was first released back in '87.

I believe so. I've very rarely played the Southern Roots "raw" versions & chat, just the finished masters.

It depends if Pol Salad Annie is sung by JLL or the producer who is what is on the bear family collection? Creedence again not sure if that's just chatter or a actual song?

Just listen to the LP / CD folks, and you'll hear what these tracks probably are (I've get better things to do myself).

It seems that not everything on the LP/Locust Years box sets is included.

Big Blue Diamonds (instr. piano mix) and the fast rehearsal of Hold On I´m Coming are missing on the list.
