As this album, ordered from Zoverstocks together with 3 others - allegedly all posted separately - were all 'lost in the post' (a remarkable and possibly unique postal error - unless you know differently) you may well wonder why 5 stars. Since I am familiar with all the numbers on this album, bought for a friend, I feel qualified to give it full marks and nominate Jimmy the natural successor to Wild Bill. As for the seller... the less said the better.

Being a newcomer to Jimmy Smith, I've mostly heard his music on various compilations. Walk On The Wild side became an instant favourite with me, and a search revealed that most albums only had one part of the song. However, I came across this album with the complete song and also numerous others that I'd heard spread across countless compilations so decided to spring for it.

Something I've noticed about CD albums from the early-mid-90s is that there seems to be a lot more care put into the production than modern music. Sure, there are some examples of talented engineering in recent years, but anyone can throw together a CD (and most can get it published too!) - but evidently a lot of talent went into making these tracks sound great.

(Re-?)Mastered in glorious stereo, everything is crystal clear right down to the infamous percussion crack of Smith's B-series. Tracks quite often have a wide stereo spectrum giving them space, and audiophiles will appreciate the careful leveling. At the very least, it's a significant improvement over the vinyl counterparts - just as CDs were meant to be.

Of course, you'll want other compilations to get tracks such as The Sermon - but if you're new to Jimmy Smith, or simply want a high-quality compilation of some of his better-known works, then this is the one for you. Besides, being an old album it's usually quite a steal too.

HASH(0x95cf6c0c) out of 5 stars 1960's Compilation 21 Aug. 2014
By John M. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I don't have this compilation but I can tell you that Organ Grinders Swing and I'll Close My Eyes are with Kenny Burrell - OGD also known as Road Song and Maybe September are with Wes Montgomery. The rest must be Big Band sessions. In fact all of Jimmy Smith's Big Band session that were arranged by Oliver Nelson for Verve records in the 1960's are in the Oliver Nelson Mosaic Box Set according to Mosaic literature.
