One of the pioneers of Chicago Blues, Otis Smothers (1929-1993) made many key contributions to the genre, writing songs, backing up and recording with Howlin' Wolf, Muddy Waters, Little Walter, Jimmy Rogers, Willie Dixon and Freddie King! This is Smokey's final known studio recording (from 1992), backed by the fine support of a Minneapolis based blues band, The Crowns. Also included are tracks 7-9 by Bobby Johnson & The Crowns from various dates. Vocalist Bobby Johnson (1939-2001), originally from Mississippi, made Minneapolis his home for decades. In 1990 he recorded a 7" for Blue Moon Records.
