Triple J Action

I'm just back from a few days in Zagreb, where I managed to pick up some very promising looking local stuff of various vintages. More of that anon, but first a couple of cracking tunes from Mr Jerome Louis Jackson, known as J.J. to his friends and fans. Why J.J. rather than J.L., I hear you ask? I'm afraid you must ask in vain, as I haven't the faintest idea.

"But It's Alright" was his hit, making the US Top 40 in 1966, and both of today's tracks were on the album of the same name. If Wikipedia is to be believed, "The Stones I Throw" is one of the earliest recordings of a Robbie Robertson song.
