Part of Jasmine's ongoing and popular "In Session" series this set can also be seen as the companion to an earlier Jasmine release, 'Don't You Just Know It - The Very Best Of Huey "Piano" Smith & The Clowns 1956-62' (JASMCD3059), this set concentrates on Huey's work as a session player.

Long before recording under his own name, he backed artists like Eddie "Guitar Slim" Jones (check out 'Standin' At The Station'), Little Richard ('Tutti-Frutti'), Earl King ('Those Lonely, Lonely Nights') and Smiley Lewis ('I Hear You Knocking').

After forming The Clowns and commencing his own recording career in 1956, Huey continued playing sessions, notably backing Junior Gordon, Roland Cook, Jesse Allen, Benny Spellman, Bobby Marchan, Charles Brown, Amos Milburn, Jesse Thomas, Peg Leg Martin and Curley Moore, featured herein. Also included is Huey & Gerri Hall's original recording of 'Sea Cruise', before the record company famously wiped their vocal and overdubbed Frankie Ford.
