Part of the problem was that Smith's soul-jazz was organic and laid-back, relaxed and funky instead of down and dirty. For latter-day listeners, aware of his reputation as the godfather of modern soul-jazz organ and certainly aware of the Beastie Boys' name drop, that may mean that Smith's actual albums all seem a bit tame and restrained, classy, not funky.

How does this release sound ? ? ? ? ?
Mine sounds excellent. Such an underrated album. Huge thanks to the Beastie Boys for getting the jam out there. If I try really hard, I can hear some light pops in the background every few seconds, but the music is loud enough to drown them out.
