Johnny Guitar Watson: A Real Mother for Ya (DJM DJLPA-7)

Joe McEwen, Rolling Stone, 30 June 1977

JOHNNY GUITAR Watson has been around. Twenty years ago he recorded a frantic, B.B. King-styled blues for R.P.M.called '3 O'clock in the Morning' that helped establish his nickname. Later he proved his versatility with an album of cocktail blues piano and a tribute to Fats Waller.
