It Ain't Easy and Everything Stops For Tea - The Reissues  - Long John's two landmark recordings It Ain't Easy (1971) and Everything Stops For Tea (1972) which were released on the Warners label are about to be reissued. It Ain't Easy includes John's signature song 'Don't Try To Lay No Boogie Woogie on the King of Rock n' Roll'. This is a song that John still performs in concert. On Everything Stops for Tea John does a great version of 'Iko Iko' and Bo Diddley's 'You Can't Judge A Book' and Willie Dixon's 'I'm Ready'. Over the years many Baldry fans have asked about the possibility of reissuing these records on CD and particularly in the last 3 years with debut of John's website people all over the world are constantly asking about CDs of these records to replace their vinyl copies. Part of the problem has been determining who owned the rights to these recordings. Below are a few MP3's kindly sent to us from Eli Maas

 MP3 - It Ain't Easy | Iko Iko | Black Girl | Mother Ain't Dead |

Long John Baldry and Erik James/Warner Bros. UK have confirmed early 2005 release date for these 2 Long John Baldry classics. There will be added bonus material as well. LJB will be autographing a limited number of CD's for the re-issues. This will be done on a first-come basis because of the demand.
