Downloaded this yesterday, but forgot to leave a comment. The link is still alive! I couldn't find any further information about the album than what you already have. The next-to-the-last song is "Smoke Stack Lightnin'"; the only "Who Knows?" song I could find was by Jimi Hendrix. The record company, Nibelung, does have a Facebook page which includes the cover of the album, but no details other than "Out of Stock".

Thanks for all your hard work. I'm going back through the archives and finding some real gems.
