Maybe not quite as early as those Columbia sides but 'Ol' Riley' for me is one of Lonnie's best from those first few sessions.
His vocal is tremendous and typifies his uniqueness as well as his real grasp of the blues genre. Yes, there's a touch of affectation in his pronunciation (he was an East End lad, after all) but it's all in a good cause.
