Rare 1967 Mono Original. Jacket Has A Radio Station Timing Strip On The Front Plus A KSJO Stamp On The Back With Notations In Pen By Each Title. The Glossy LP Appears Unplayed. “Although It Predates His Classic Soul-Jazz Dates For Blue Note By A Few Years, Lonnie Smith's Debut LP, Finger-Lickin' Good, Boasts A Deeply Funky Groove Quite Unusual For The Mid-'60s, A Period When Few Jazz Musicians Acknowledged The Influence Of More Commercial Musical Pursuits, Let Alone Introduced Such Elements Into Their Own Work. Aided And Abetted By An All-Star Lineup Including Guitarist George Benson, Saxophonist King Curtis, And Trumpeter Blue Mitchell, Smith Keeps The Performances Brisk And Bold, Galvanized By Stiletto-Sharp Bursts Of Organ. Cuts Like "Hola Muneca" And "Can't You Just Feel It" Possess A Raw Vitality Quite Uncommon For The Moment In Question, And While It's Disingenuous To Call Finger-Lickin' Good Groundbreaking, It's Definitely A Record Ahead Of Its Time.” Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide.
