Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - William Ruhlmann
Huey "Piano" Smith & His Clowns left Ace Records in 1960 and began recording for Imperial. The group released eight tracks on four singles in 1961: "The Little Moron"/"Someone to Love" 5721, "Behind the Wheel, Pt. 1"/"Behind the Wheel, Pt. 2" 5747, "More Girls"/"Sassy Sara" 5772, and "Don't Knock It"/"Snag-a-Tooth Jeanie" 5789. None of these records was successful, and Smith returned to Ace. Subsequently, he moved to Pitter-Pat Records, where "Through Foolin' Around, Pt. I"/"Through Foolin' Around, Pt. II" was issued as by Shin Dig Smith and the Soul Shakers, and "Bury Me Dead"/"Baby You Hurt Me" was credited to the Pitter Pats. Ten of these tracks are included on ...

Ten of these tracks are included on the Snag-a-Tooth Jeanie compilation, along with eight selections recorded for Imperial and previously unissued: "Why Did I Do Wa-Do-Do," "Somebody Told It," "Psycho," "I Didn't Do It," "Heart Trouble, Pt. I," "The Hill Ain't Far," "Able Mabel," and "I Don't Play Like That." None of these tracks, released and rare or unreleased, matches the best of Smith's output, such as the unforgettable "Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu." But this is enjoyable New Orleans music with rollicking rhythms and a comic edge, and it would make a good addendum to one of the Huey "Piano" Smith best-of compilations.
