Hi everybody, this quick message to let you know I’m looking for a copy of the Jimmy Lee Rollin’ CD “Kiss me Baby”. Saw it a few years ago on Cdbaby but missed it. Many thanks in advance, Laurent

This was a very limited press (I haven’t even listed them on the site yet), though I will ask Lewis himself if he has anymore. I have one copy for myself.
