Alligator Records will release 180 gram vinyl reissues of Buddy Guy's Stone Crazy!

and Professor Longhair's Crawfish Fiesta on October 16, 2012. Both titles have been out of print on vinyl for 20 years and have been painstakingly remastered. The remastered versions will also be available through all major download services.

Stone Crazy! contains some of the most ferocious guitar playing of Guy's storied career. Rolling Stone says Stone Crazy! features "the artist at his frantic and frenzied best...savage guitar and fiery vocals."

Crawfish Fiesta, featuring some of the best recorded performances of Fess' long and storied career, contains a previously unreleased rehearsal track (Percy Mayfield's River's Invitation). The Village Voice calls Crawfish Fiesta "a masterpiece."
