✨✧ Smokey Smothers with Freddy KingSmokey Smothers Sings Back Porch Blues ... CD
King/Ace (UK), Early 60s. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
A Chicago blues gem – and some of the rarest material issued by King Records in the 60s – very gritty, earthy blues from singer Smokey Smothers – who gets plenty of help in the studio from a young Freddy King! Smothers has this raspy, almost casual style of singing – one that works well with the easygoing rhythms of the tunes, and opens up plenty of space for Freddy to come in and do his thing – coloring the tunes with the same bold tones as on his own King sessions of the time, and maybe bringing a lot more bite into Smokey's songs than they would have had otherwise! The original record is nearly impossible to find – it fell into obscurity almost immediately upon release – and this set brings it back, along with unissued tracks and singles – to make for a whopping 25 titles in all. Tracks include "Crying Tears", "I Can't Judge Nobody", "Smokey's Love Sick Blues", "Give It Back", "The Case Is Closed", "Midnight & Day", "Honey I Ain't Teasin", "Com On Rock Little Girl", "I Ain't Gonna Be No Monkey Man No More", and "Way Up In The Mountains Of Kentucky".
