It was a great deal of fun doing these recordings, with Neil Sever at the board all I had to do was enjoy the show for the most part. I did have to bring down the Hammond B-3 from the studio for one show, which was a back breaker, but the sound it produced was well worth the effort. After the release of the "Live & Lowdown!" (NCP023) from Bobby Murray, these tapes went into the No Cover archives for a few years. Now it's time to re-visit them for the release of Lenny Watkins' first ever solo CD "Live At Memphis Smoke" (NCP098). Lenny's dynamic vocals and stage presence wow the crowd which only serves to energize him even more. I am glad to have had the chance to work with all the great musicians who back Lenny on this Cd. I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed making it.
