A monster! "Smokey Joe's La La" is a hard-dancing, heavy-stepping, piano-driven instrumental that we never tire of! The pianist has this heavy left hand that really works the go-go groove of the cut wonderfully – taking into sock-boogaloo heaven! The flipside features a killer from Brother Jack McDuff! "Hot Barbeque" is one of his greatest tunes ever – and a rare number in that it's got vocals shouted over the top, screaming "hot barbeque – today!" while the organ, guitar, and tenor race madly over this jaunty rhythm laid down by the drums of Joe Dukes!
