Back at the Chicken Shack
Back at the Chicken Shack is an album by Jimmy Smith. It was recorded in 1960 and released in 1963 on the Blue Note label. Smith recorded the album at the same session as his previous album Midnight Special. Fittingly, he wears the same red shirt on both album covers. It was cited in the book 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die.
