Mississippi –Mr. Union Railway Man –ACETATE!

Mississippi –Mr. Union Railway Man –Fanfare Acetate (1970 UK)

Ah, don’t you just love it when you find a real bargain. When buying acetates you never quite know what you’re going to get but in this instance I got exactly what I was hoping for.
Yes, below you will find a DIFFERENT version of the classic Mr. Union Railway Man by Mississippi. The main difference is the prominent (and phased!) Jungle Call horns, and the mix is pretty different, unless it is another take from the same session. Perhaps the official version wins it due to its undiluted purity of essence, but it’s a real cool artefact. Hear an edit of the official version here:
