"... The grainy, out-of-focus picture of Williamson that fills this front cover is no exception; in fact, in a way, it established the rule. It isn't that he looks mean, he just looks like he could care less. Such a look of indifference has perhaps never before been captured by the camera. It could easily have been taken during some of the discussion that occurs between the artist and his producers during the recording of a song called "Little Village." It was the reissue producer's decision to put an entire 11 minutes of takes, re-takes, and related arguing on the first side of this collection, complete with a severe warning that the proceedings are not suitable for airplay. ..."
Sonny Boy Williamson - Bummer Road.
Available thanks to Magic Notes, which seems to be a great blog with a lot of rare blues, soul, doo-wop and some other great stuff.
(Thanks to Martooni for finding this treasure!)
