Editorial Reviews

Byther really flies on this set and you can really feel the energy he and his band laid down on these tracks. Byther even recorded an acoustic song on this album, something he never has done before. If you love that raw, brooding Chicago blues sound, played and sung with lots of soul and emotion., you'll love this set. It's as rough and tough as you can get it today. And it's definitely 'Smitty's blues'.

It's curious to title an album of mostly covers "Smitty's Blues" but this import is a strong collection of 12 tunes marred only by the unusually skimpy number of Byther Smith originals. In fact, of the four songs written by Smith, two - "Your Daughter Don't Want Me No More" and "Don't Hurt Me No More" - appeared on the all-originals collection "Mississippi Kid" (terrific album, that) a scant five years earlier, and one is an instrumental. Oh well, Smitty shines on this disc recorded in The Netherlands with, apparently, an all-Dutch band. Sure, a few too many old blues warhorses are trotted out - "She's a Good 'Un", "Five Long Years", "Tramp", "You Don't Love Me No More" - but our man is in fine form and the band is good, including some nice Hammond organ by Roel Spanjers, who also produced. Despite the scarcity of originals, this is a strong disc though not Byther Smith's very best.
