28. Jimmy Smith - Back At The Chicken Shack

Release Date: 1960
Label: Blue Note

The front cover is terrible, and sadly the dog is long dead. Going into this I'd never heard of Jimmy Smith, and the album art does nothing to suggest what kind of music he might perform. To put it simply, the album was smooth. It mainly consisted of lots and lots of Hammond Organ, hi-hats and bass scales. That's not to say I didn't like it, in fact I rather enjoyed it. I just think it was a little linear for my taste.

Overall: 6/10
Favourite Track: When I Grow Too Old To Dream

Next Album: Muddy Waters - Muddy Waters At Newport
