how is this?

Not one of my faves. I'm not a huge fan of the Lonnie/Kudo period. Pretty low on the Lonnie list for me, but others may differ.

On the other hand, I very much find this one a keeper.

"Mama Wailer" is a great tune. Pick it up, SS1.

I relistened to this the other day and found it absolutely inspired. Great LP I've really ignored unjustly. Ron Carter plays some super badass electric bass too. :tup

I know it's got a KILLER "Back at the Chicken Shack." I don't have it, but I should.

It's definately on of Reuben's best recordings ever. He really gets to show himself a little more on this one as opposed to a producer making him play "Ronnie's Bonnie" for the upteenth time (hey, I love that song too!).

SS1 you burn CD's of the stuff you d/l from emusic? I used to do that cuz its less than the cost of buying an album from Fantasy's list price.

i like every hammond smith cd i own

Johnny Hammond Smith is/was very underrated. I enjoy all his discs, as well and always find something interesting in the arrangements and tune choices.

This is an underrated album showcasing Pat in his early days. I can't imagine that you wouldn't like this album. :tup

Just had to say that, after listening to Let 'em Roll again, that this is a monster record. Latona is such a great song, and the way this cd is sequenced, I mean, can The Shadow Of Your Smile come at any other place? This has to be at the very top of my essential organ records.

This is a fun record. Maybe a tiny bit too slick, but these guys lock into a really nice groove. "The Turnaround" is great.
