Johnny Adams: The Tan Nightingale (Charly)

Barney Hoskyns, New Musical Express, 1987

CHARLY FOLLOW-UP their 1978 reissue of Johnny's Heart And Soul album with a wider-ranging retrospective on the man also known as the Tan Canary. (Given the current popularity of 'Mellow Canary' Barrington Levy, I think we'll stick with Charly's choice of songbird.)
