Do not have, have not heard. The songs are mostly the same, with a couple of new ones to me, but I don't link to the lyrics as Woody's lead vocal was somewhat less cautious about printed sources. The mysterious ones here are not on the 4 CD set of Woody's (and some Cisco) "Asch Recordings." (At least with these titles.) Pretty fancy pressing though--bright red vinyl and different designs on both sides. Whoa!

If anyone has this LP and would like to transcribe the lyrics, or share a copy with me, I'd be most grateful to put its contents on this site. Thanks!
