The ultimate version of the ultimate Blackhouse album. Brian Ladd presents you WWFB as it was recorded and meant to be heard. Due to the time restrictions on vinyl, several tracks had to be taken off the album. Now, this classic record comes to you full-length, with the original intended running order and a booklet explaining more about the recording and some rarely seen band photographs.
