Recording information: Small's Paradise.
This Collectables reissue combines two King Curtis albums originally released on Atco. Have Tenor Sax, Will Blow is from 1959 and Live at Small's Paradise from 1966. This is fun soul instrumental music of its time but occasionally generic, highlighted by the two separate versions of the "Peter Gunn Theme." ~ Al Campbell
