This review is from: Breakin' Down the Walls of Heartache (Audio CD)
I saw Johnny Johnson live in Margate, way back when I was around 15 or 16. This was the first soul act I ever saw, and well let's just say it was a truly memorable night all round..
The earlier stuff is surprisingly soulful, but then Johnny Johnson was ridiculously underrated. My only disappointment is that the CD doesn't include more from Soul Survivor, which I've still got on scratchy old vinyl. Never Let Her Go or his version of The Dells Love Is Blue/Sing A Rainbow, for instance, would have been very welcome. But still after all this time it's quite wonderful to finally hear Johnny Johnson on CD.
