  4. So, there are 2 takes of "Dark Muddy Bottom" by Riley---one with a guitar intro and the other with a piano intro?

  5. Dark Muddy Bottom (Alt, Vers.01) with Piano intro = (1958) Sun (TN) Unissued Demo
    Billy Lee Riley & His Little Green Men not same as Rita 45 Lightnin' Leon aka Billy Lee Riley (1960)

  6. I think the original is (1954)Specialty (CA) 45 - 481 : Mercy Dee - Dark Muddy Bottom (but i may be wrong)

  7. That happens when one of the tracks on a download is available on Amazon. I think one of the Billy Lee Riley tracks is on a Bear Family comp, thus just that one track knocks out your complete download. It doesn't matter whether or not it's an original compilation. Thanks for re-posting it. The new download comes through fine.

  8. On the Mediafire shares, I've found that trying a couple of times in quick succession will pull up a valid download, even if Amazon is trying to block it. Not sure why, but I haven't found any yet that I can't get after a couple of tries.
