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

Johnny The Giant Of Love 20 Aug. 2012
By Andre S. Grindle - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Johnny Guitar Watson is one of my very favorite artists. Not only is he an extremely talented singer/songwriter/multi instrumentalist and lyrical wit but in terms of that touch of personal uniqueness that the best blues,jazz,funk and soul artists have,he's got in in spades. First when everyone thought that the classic 12 bar blues was fully integrated into other musics,Watson showed how it could survive in a funk context completely uncut. He never stopped playing the blues. By the late 70's the disco-dance era had settled in and now,funk was in danger of being smothered. Nevermind the blues. But Watson wasn't too afraid. He was already poised to sing the blues under the mirrored ball.

Already well prepared with the progression into funk,Watson kicked up a furocious dance-funk jam right of the bat with "Miss Frisco (Queen Of The Disco)". Even on the almost stereotypically 4 on the floor sound of "Guitar Disco" it's...disco how they'd do it in in the Mississippi Delta,Chicago or even in Watson's home town of Houston. It's full of southern wit and a mixture of his patented bluesy funk and late 70's sophistifunk Dyno'd electric pianos and such. On a remake of his own "Gangster Of Love" he fully revisits the blues of course. On "Tu Jours Amour" and "Wrapped In Black Mink" the keyboard based sophistifunk is at a premium with some of his most complex melodies he ever wrote.

"You Can Stay But The Noise Must Go" is a sleek funk smooth groove,one of my favorites here as it's one of his story songs about the typical anti music landlord. Haven't most of us been in this situation? The album ends with that almost obligatory late 70's nod to reggae with "Baby Face". The bonus tracks are huge highlites in "Base Station One",high octane sci fi style P-Funk with a bluesier twist and "Do Me Bad So Good",which sounds like it came from the early 1980's with it's Moog bass and "Billie Jean" like slinky groove. I actually heard a lot of negative things about this album. Mainly about Watson "going disco". But I think some people are missing the point. He embraced disco music the way he did funk. But he swung it his way. And that way was right back into funk and into the blues. So for me anyway,what's not to like?

Mr. watson is a Giant in the industry 18 May 2009
By Calvin B. Miles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Mr. Johnny "Guitar " Watson

Mr. Watson, never recieved the credit on the airwaves that he should have gotten, period. That's a real muther for fans to swallow. A true blues & funk master on stage,and incredible musically talented person. This Disc is pure and simply Hot, Hot, Hot. Starting with; Mrs. Frisco a tribute to one of his favorite pastimes,talking about the female persuasion.Following that up with Tu Jouts Amour,and Ganster of Love. Setting the stage for what is to follow, making you move your feet on Guitar Disco a nice toe tapping ditty. I won't go into all the reasons that is a great addition to any collectors vault of music. Suffic to say, there are many classic riffs on these cuts. It's really ashame that radio stations that claim to have the corner on old school music stick to mostly Motown or the Philadephia sound. Yes,they have good music there to be sure. But, compare that with other venues and Mr.Watson has to be included, Wrapped in Black Mink and Baby Face are pefect for radio play as well. These two are among my personal favorites, for their sheer fun of techinque and style. And were great to hear live. If you missed him live, "shame on you" is all I can say. Pick this one up !!! "DJ Warlock" Recommends it highly.

One Of His Best 15 May 2010
By N. Gerarde - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I've been lifting weights to this album lately; it's pretty good. I didn't like it when I first bought it, but I have started playing it again recently, and now I'm hooked. While there's nothing as immediately catchy as "Ain't That A Bitch" or "I Need It" on this album (I don't think so, anyway) overall I'd say it's a fine album. It just takes a little more time to grow on you.

This is probably his most "disco" album, but that's not a bad thing. No ballads, just pure fun(k).

ANY RECORDING BY JOHNNY GUITAR 16 Aug. 2007
By COMPUTERJAZZMAN - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
GETS FIVE STARS FROM ME, 'CAUSE I KNOW I'M GONNA LOVE IT. THIS ONE IS NO EXCEPTION. SELF-PRODUCED (AND RELATIVELY LOW BUDGET, BUT YOU 'D NEVER KNOW IT), JOHNNY PLAYS VIRTUALLY EVERY INSTRUMENT ON THIS CD (EXCEPT FOR BACKUP VOCALS). HIS LATTER DAY STUFF ALWAYS HAS A NICE FUNKY BEAT. THIS GUY JUST OOOOOOOOZES TALENT, LIKE OTIS REDDING, ARETHA FRANKLIN, OR STEVIE WONDER, BUT HE NEVER GOT AS FAMOUS AS ANY OF THOSE GREAT PERFORMERS, AND IF YOU ASK SOMEONE LIKE SNOOP DOGG, HE WILL TELL YOU THAT JOHNNY GUITAR "INVENTED" RAP MUSIC. NOT HIS BEST CD, BUT YOU WILL EMNJOY IT FOR SURE. GREAT RE-MAKES OF "GANGSTER OF LOVE", YOU CAN STAY (BUT THE NOISE MUST GO), AND "YOU DO ME BAD SO GOOD".
