Mercury, 1977. Very Good+ ... $3.99
One of Jimmy's last albums for a major label in the 70s – a real back-to-basics set that was recorded live at the Jimmy Smith Supper Club in LA – the "home of fried cornbread and live jazz", and a venue that we certainly wish we could have visited!

Jimmy SmithOther Side Of Jimmy Smith ... LP
MGM, Early 70s. Near Mint- ... $5.99
The other side of Jimmy Smith is a mellow side – as this album's nearly all ballads and standards, set to moody late night orchestrations by Johnny Pate.
