"The California Historical Society lists Smiley’s as one of only fourteen bars in the state to be in continuous existence for over 100 years. The saloon is believed to have been built in 1851 for the energetic young Captain Isaac Morgan. Captain Morgan arrived in Bolinas (or Jugville as it was known then) in 1849. Those were gold rush days, days of growth. Those were days when one gambled with one’s dreams and then watched them either shatter and splinter or be crafted and honed into realities."

Additional Musical Category Notes:

This is a re-issue of Jon’s 1995 European release "Late Rent." Never before available in the U.S., it contains a collection of recordings featuring Bernard Purdie and Steve Ferrone on drums, as well as Todd Anderson and Alex Foster on sax, Barry Finnerty and Graham Hawthorne, Ray Grappone, Jim Preston and Chuggy Carter. The record is a swinging and funky compilation of original tracks written by Jon Hammond, as well as some anecdotal asides and a guest apperance by Jazzbeaux Collins. Lots of great solos and organ sounds, as well as melodies and groove. Includes "Late Rent," "Pocket Funk," "Lydia’s Tune," "White Onions," "Head Phone" and "Hip Hop Chitlins."

WHITE ONIONS was co-written by myself and organist Jon Hammond and is on his debut 1996 Hot Wire release "Late Rent". As is often the case when we write together, he came up with the basic groove and form and I added a melody. After we wrote it, the groove reminded us of "Green Onions" by Booker T & the MG’s, so we decided to call it "White Onions". Drummer Bernard Purdie thought it was a bit much when I started introducing the tune as being about "onions of the Caucasian persuasion", but after I convinced him that no racial slur was intended, the title stayed!"
