Biography

"Reinvention" could just as easily have been Johnny "Guitar" Watson's middle name.
The multi-talented performer parlayed his stunning guitar skills into a vaunted reputation as one of the hottest blues axemen on the West Coast during the 1950s. But that admirable trait wasn't paying the bills as the 1970s rolled in. So he totally changed his image to that of a ... Read more in Amazon's Johnny "Guitar" Watson Store

Way Beyond The Call Of Duty!!! 16 Oct. 2005
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The title track of this album is a true 70's funk classic.It's got it all-great groove,blaring clavinet and horns and Johnny Guitar's yowling vocals.And it just get's better from there as "It's About The Dollar Bill",the brilliant "It's A Damn Shame" and "Barn Door" all deliver the same kind of goods filled with Johnny's good humored style.And for once this CD features bonus cuts that are NOT featured in some other version on the album-the odd vocal groove "Can You Handle It" and the unique "Virgina's Pretty Funky"-a cross between R&B and some wacked out Broadway musical.Just a terrific funk reissue that deserves emmediate addition to your collection

Funking above and beyond the call of duty 6 Oct. 2000
By aL - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Hot on the heels of the success of his previous two albums (they both went gold), Johnny 'Guitar' Watson dropped another 70's funk classic. I'd heard this wasn't as good as the previous two but I'd say its my favourite Johnny 'Guitar' Watson cd so far, there are more grooves on this one and less ballads. Watson wrote , preformed, and produced, this and played all the instruments except for drums and horns. For fans of 70's funk music that want an introduction to one of the genre's lesser known master's, 'Funk Beyond the Call of Duty' is the perfect introduction. After all, this is: FUNK BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY.

CLASSIC FUNK FROMTHE 70'S 17 Sept. 2007
By COMPUTERJAZZMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
JOHNNY GUITAR WATSON HAD A LONG AND PROLIFIC, IF A BIT OVERLOOKED CAREER. HE PLAYED A LOT OF GREAT MUSIC FROM THE EARLY 50'S RIGHT UP UNTIL THE TIME HE DROPPED DEAD ONSTAGE IN JAPAN MANY YEARS LATER. THIS ALBUM IS FROM THE "FUNK" STAGE OF HIS CAREER, CIRCA 1977. AND IT IS ONE OF HIS BEST. FRANK ZAPPA ONCE DESCRIBED JOHNNY'S GUITAR PLAYING AS SOUNDING "LIKE AN ICEPICK IN THE FOREHEAD", AND THE DESCRIPTION FITS. AND ETTA JAMES CREDITS HER STYLE OF SINGING FROM LISTENING TO JOHNNY GUITAR. THIS ALBUM IS JUST ONE MORE REASON HE IS THE GANGSTER OF LOVE!
