Big Smokey Smothers with The Crowns - That's Alright

CD Information

This is a moment in time. The Crowns backed Smokey on this recording in 1992; then Otis “Big Smokey” Smothers died a year later from heart disease. So, this CD truly has captured a snapshot of a blue great. His voice is expressive, still capable of nuance and emotional connection. This is proudly old school, led by a musician who knows what Chicago Blues means. “That’s Alright” is as much about Paul Barry and The Crowns, as Big Smokey. They support Big Smokey without overwhelming him while still providing a full blues band sound around him. The last three tracks on the album feature The Crown’s own front man, Bobby Johnson. This is the kind of album you put on when you have a few friends over for a mellow evening.
