The CD DIGIPAK comes with 8 bonus tracks , Obi strip and NEW LINER NOTES by producer Swamp Dogg. Blues singer ZZ Hill first made records for Atlantic, Kent, and in 1971 scored his first big hit for United Artists, followed by others on Columbia. In the 80 s he single-handedly started a blues revival in the USA with the smash-it "Down Home Blues". "The Brand New ZZ Hill" was originally marketed as a Blues Opera, an oddity back in the early seventies, and was written by Swamp Dogg and Gary U.S. Bonds. When released it hit both the Billboard Top 200 and the R&B charts and sold over a million singles via six releases. The album has been REMASTERED for this release .
