Torrent description

The Chicago blues scene boasted its own pair of Smothers Brothers, but there was nothing particularly amusing about their tough brand of blues music. The older of the two by a decade, Otis "Big Smokey" Smothers was first to arrive in the Windy City from Mississippi in the mid-'40s. Howlin' Wolf liked the way he played enough to invite him into the Chess studios as his rhythm guitarist on several 1956-57 sessions (songs included "Who's Been Talking," "Tell Me," "Going Back Home," and "I Asked for Water").
Federal Records found Smothers's simple shuffle sound immensely appealing in 1960, recording 12 tracks by the good-natured bluesman with labelmate Freddy King handling lead guitar duties (King, Federal's parent logo, even issued a Smothers LP that's worth a pretty penny today). A four-song 1962 session that included "Way Up in the Mountains of Kentucky" and an updated version of the Hank Ballard the Midnighters classic "Work with Me Annie" ("Twist with Me Annie") completed his Federal tenure.
Apart from a 1968 single for Gamma ("I Got My Eyes on You"), Smothers didn't make it back onto wax until 1986, when Red Beans Records, a small Chicago outfit run by pianist Erwin Helfer and guitarist Pete Crawford, brought him back to the record racks with an LP called Got My Eyes on You that showed his style hadn't changed a whit with the decades. Smokey Smothers was a beloved Chicago traditionalist until the very end.


Otis "Smokey" Smothers's 1962 LP Sings the Backporch Blues is a rare and coveted blues album. This CD puts it into wide circulation and then some, not only presenting all 12 of the songs from the original album (as the first dozen tunes on the disc), but adding nine alternate takes and four tracks from 1962-1963 singles. The album is perhaps overestimated due to its rarity, but it's solid Chicago blues, owing much to the sort of mid-tempo shuffle that Jimmy Reed had made so much in vogue by the early '60s. Smothers has a relaxed, almost effortless vocal style, and the LP is a rare chance to hear Freddy King working as a session guitarist. King actually plays in a slightly more restrained and traditional style here than he did on his solo recordings. King Records wanted Smothers to play in a Jimmy Reed style, and frankly it did on the whole sound too close to Reed, sharing the flaw of songs that were too similar to each other. Occasionally he breaks out of that mold, as in the minor-key "Crying Tears," though that sounds rather close to some of Otis Rush's early sides, or "I Ain't Gonna Be No Monkey Man No More," which has the kind of jerky RB feel that Reed usually didn't mine. The 1962-1963 singles are somewhat more fully produced and Smothers seems a little more at ease, with the grooves flowing in a nice punchy shuffle, though "Twist With Me Annie" suffers from sounding like the umpteenth attempt to make a takeoff on Hank Ballard's old "Work With Me Annie" series of RB hits.
