If there is a West Coast blues harp style, then George Smith is clearly its Father. In addition, Smith was one of the most compelling blues singers of his generation. When he leaned back and started blowin'the blues, Smith created some of the most exciting music in blues history. His hard-drive, metallic-edged diatonic harmonic playing, with its frequent use of tongue-blocked octaves and a pulsing vibrato that seemed to emanate from the pit of his stomach, offered up a new sound that would infuence legions of young players. This classic release combines rare sides from two 'sixties sessions with a great set of recordings with Rod Piazza's band from 1982.
