In his day, the idiosyncratic, much-recorded Texas bluesman Smokey Hogg was a proven favorite who recorded prolifically for just about every major West Coast R&B label of the post-war years. The 25 songs range from the small band jump of "River Hip Mama" via the stripped-down solo performances of "Two Mama Blues" and the title track to the lively, hillbilly influenced "Whoa Mule". Features Hadda Brooks on piano, Maxwell Davis on tenor and Al "Cake" Wichard on drums. More than half these selections are either alternate (and better) takes or previously unissued (and, in some cases, undocumented) recordings. Few, if any, have ever been available on CD before, at least not legitimately!
