6-CD boxed set (LP-size) with 28-page book, 159 tracks. Playing time approx. 407 mns.
Generally acknowledged as one of the greatest live performers in rock 'n' roll, Sleepy LaBeef has never received his due as a recording artist. It's no understatement to say that he has a more encyclopaedic knowledge of American roots music than any other artist who ever lived.
This 6-CD-set is the definitive edition. It includes all the early recordings for Starday, Dixie, and other Gulf-coast labels, rare and previously unissued demos, all the Columbia recordings from 1965-1967, and all of Sleepy's Sun recordings from 1970 to 1979, including his gospel and western LPs. Longtime Sleepy faves like Ride On Josephine, Boom Boom Boom, Ragged But Right, Thunder Road, and There Ain't Much After Taxes are all here.
