cifs read error when accessing a samba mount

I have a samba mount setup as follow:

   comment = My music share
   path = /home/music/
   public = yes
   guest ok = yes
   writable = no
accessing with smbclient have no problem listing the file and reading files (tested with 'more')

I try to mount the share using cifs, with this command:

$ sudo mount -t cifs //localhost/mp3_share /mnt/smbmnt/mp3/ -o guest,user=guest,iocharset=utf8
mounting gives no error. I can 'ls' the file, but I cannot read the file:
$ cat /mnt/smbmnt/mp3/list.txt
cat: /mnt/smbmnt/mp3/list.txt: Permission denied
dmesg register the following error:
CIFS VFS: Send error in read = -13
Please help.
