He eventually made the decision to leave Chicago, and spent much of his adult life on the West Coast of America. Smith played with the blues combo, Bacon Fat, and tutored its harmonica player Rod Piazza, and mentored guitarist (Blues Musician) Buddy Reed, before joining forces with Big Mama Thornton in the 1970s.

He appeared on her album Jail (1975), and with another harmonica student William Clarke. The few solo albums he recorded in his life reflected his admiration for the playing style of Little Walter. George "Harmonica" Smith died in 1983, in Los Angeles, California at the age of 59. Read more on Last.fm.
