Jungle Room Sessions is my FAVORITE FTD, hands down.
I would buy a follow-up release in a hot second - I love everything from those final recording sessions @ Graceland.
All of that bunk about EP being out of it, depressed, uninterested, etc. ..... is exposed for all of the hog-wash that it is ...... after one gives a listen to these session outtakes.
EP is in fine voice and his delivery exudes pure, utter emotion - communicating his soul to the listener.
"If I ever got to the place where I could feel all Arthur Crudup felt, .......... I'd be a music man like nobody ever saw."
After giving a listen to these sessions, .......... it is obvious that EP had not only achieved his goal, but surpassed it.
