This record is a weapon of mass destruction. Throw it on, and watch the room blow up.

my copy has the exact same label and runouts but different around the side of the label. Mine says:
MGM RECORDS- A DIVISION OF METRO-GOLDWYN-MAYER, INC. Made in U.S.A.

You know, there are some actions that some of us have committed that should be against the law. Mine's should be ignoring this "Classic" of an album!!! I guess I was scared to try it, because of Mr. Smith's early recordings. Yes, they are classic, but I can't get into the early Jazz too much, not enough "Super-Spunk" for me("Got My Mojo Workin'" is tight though!). But when I finally decided to stop being a "Chicken" and bought it, MAN!!!! It is non-stop Jazzy Funk at it's best. I can see why it was voted his best album ever, it deserves to be labled that. It has everything I look for in a '70's Jazz album, great playing with the ability to take the music in so many directions. One thing I can say about Jimmy Smith is that he always seem to have great Guitar work with him. The Wah-Wah and Electric Guitars here are off the hook! To put it mildly (if I could), I need to let off for good behavor, so I can continue to ware out this "Classic"....
