Audiophile LImited Edition Remastered and pressed on HQ-180g vinyl at RTI!
Blind Pig Records is proud to announce the Vinyl Masters Series, a new line of
remastered, high-quality, 180gram virgin vinyl LPs.
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 influence 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.
