Album Notes
This album is a presentation of a wide variety of styles. There is an example of a driving blues sound on Sixty Minute Man as well as a couple of Blues ballads in You Don't Know Me and Georgia On My Mind. Turning Country Rock, there is a re-do of Merle Haggard's Workin Man Blues that is a moving experience.
Pure Country, Folksy Country, A couple of finger style guitar tunes and some real rockin' Blues round out one of the stronger presentations of variety anywhere.
Leon Smith is not new to the music scene. He was thrust on stage at the age of 4 and survived the experience to continue in the business. At the age of 15 Leon recorded "Little 40 Ford" that reached the charts in the summer of 1959.
During his "First Life" as he calls it, Leon appeared with numerous well known entertainers including Ferlin Husky, George Jones, Minnie Pearl, Jim Reeves, Marty Robbins, and many others from the Country Field and Rockers such as Duane Eddy, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Fats Domino, The Ventures, and many, many more. Leon appeared in many of the show lounges in Nevada and eventually settled in Reno, Nevada when he left Music in 1973 and persued a career in the Automobile and Recreational Vehicle business. Retiring in 2003, Leon decided to once again do what he is most adept at, and that is performing for live audiences. Those audiences as well as fellow musicians have been urging him to record some of the songs he has written as well as the most requested numbers from his shows and thus the album "The Smith Kid Rides Again". The picture on the front of the CD is Leon's first publicity picture. He was 5 years old at the time of the picture. This album offers something for everyone and everyone should enjoy it.
