One of the Blues Funketeer's finest
Andre Heeger | Germany | 05/03/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Johnny Guitar Watson plays guitar like no other. Got to, since he's a blues man. What? you'd say, didn't he do "Real Mother For Ya". Sure he did, he also did Booty Ooty (which is on this one), Gangster Of Love (on Giant - and which Steve Miller borrowed for The Joker), I Don't Wanna Be President (on What The Hell Is This? - on fuel shortage), I even dare to say he was one of the first rappers around when nobody except maybe Isaac Hayes did things like that.
So WHAT is Johnny Guitar - or better was, since he died in Japan in the middle of a performance.
Johnny was one of the best, period. He played the guitar - and most other instruments, composed, arranged and produced. He was funny as hell: You Can Stay But The Noise Must Go (come on, who else would come up with that?). Check out the covers, one better than the other.
You want to dance, take Johnny, you want to love, same thing. In for a laugh, go for Johnny. Anything else on your mind? Johnny delivers.
You have this one yet? What do you think I'm doing here, huh? Get it, now (tm)@$*¿Á!!!
Enjoy!"
