Reefer Songs

A most excellent compilation of early blues and jazz concerning the muggles, tea, reefer, the jive and many other wonderful things known to the law enforcement as Cannabis sp. A very strong selection of tunes by a variety of artists, from the better-known like Benny Goodman and Ella Fitzgerald, to the forgotten ones. Hardly any filler here at all, folks!
