    @Storf I am kicking myself for missing out on the RL Burnside a while back (my first month was Menomena). In a similar vein, I am also a proud owner of a VMP Junior Kimbrough from a few years back.

    I was wondering if there were any plans to do any more Burnside, Kimbrough, or maybe some T-Model Ford either as exclusives or through the Classics track. I realize that most of their output would be considered more modern releases, but it could be argued that the spirit and execution of their performances would fit them right in alongside Muddy Waters or Little Milton. In particular, an album like Kimbrough's "Sad Days Lonely Nights" is as classic as any blues album of the last 60 years.

    YES! These are two of my favorite VMP Exclusives ever released! You have exquisite taste and I wholeheartedly support this question.

    @Storf When the Classics were first announced I wasn't in the position to be able to afford another sub. Im now slowly working through getting all of the past Classic ROTM's and seeing that John Lee Hooker has sold out and it doesn't look like its going to be repressed (is this correct?), which would you suggest I pick up first to reduce the risk of missing out? Cheers.

    Classics are selling out basically in order of them coming out, except for Miles Davis/Coltrane. So get the oldest stuff.

    Brilliant. Cheers, I will start from the beginning then. Loving what I have so far. I’d go as far as saying I prefer them to the essentials and R&HH
