5.0 out of 5 stars A superb disc. 5 Sept. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I love his vocals and his guitar playing. He brings a unique and wonderful style to standards such as "Summertime" and "What a Difference a Day Makes. " Check out the amazing guitar on a track like "Prisoner of Love." The disc also includes some snippets of an interview with Johnson. It's quite an eyeopener to hear this man's humble descriptions of his life - it's quite refreshing compared with the pampered and spoiled attitudes of celebrity muscians today.

5.0 out of 5 stars What more can you say ! 8 Jun. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A fantastic CD of the late great Lonnie Johnson. I bought this CD especially for the tune called 'Mister Trouble' which I had recorded off of a Blues program years ago but did not catch the artists name. When I found out a year later I purchased the CD immediately right here from Amazon ! It is good long CD with a great interview with Lonnie at the end and what a nice guy ! If you love folk blues this is a must have ! Buy it, listen to it, LOVE it. You will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thrilling, Comforting, Personal, unique great 23 Oct. 2003
By Tony Thomas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These records are unique. Johnson plays all of these selections solo on an a very acoustic sounding electric guitar and sings them all. Now and then he talks about the songs. They range from blues to "my mother's eyes" and include a number of great pop ballads from "I'm Confessin" to "What a Difference a Day Makes." This is a master who had been playing and singing for 40 years, yet there is so much personal sentimental and feeling here, so much expression in the guitar playing. You feel like you know the man after you hear this. You feel like you really know these songs anew after you here this album. This is a good album for a thoughtful evening with a good glass of wine, a good friend, and an open mind!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving revisitation of standards from his early years 2 April 2015
By Scott Hedegard - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
We hear so much, maybe too much about the legendary Robert Johnson, and forget that Robert's guitar hero was Lonnie Johnson of New Orleans (no relation), who wasn't just a brilliant musician, but was as comfortable with blues as jazz and the pop standards of his day. After his rediscovery in the 1960's, this album was recorded in 1967, with just Lonnie, his guitar and his voice. It is a loving tribute to a very underrated genius of the 20th century, and the album is pure in its sincerity and delivery, Johnson being a devotee to the music and not himself.
His guitar work was great, and his somewhat high pitched voice as plaintive and sincere as any that ever graced an album. Plus, for folks who have an open mind and want to learn about our musical history from the last century, it's a fine introduction.
We get "Mr. Trouble", a great blues with great lyrics, "How Deep Is The Ocean", a standard from the '30s and a plethora of tunes that thankfully still have an audience lest they be forgotten by all but the most obsessive music collector.
Johnson has recorded a lot of music, both with accompaniment and solo. I also strongly suggest his double disc with Eddie Lang, the other lead guitar pioneer of the late '20's, "Blue Guitars". All guitarists should pay homage to these pioneers who were technically far better than their Delta counterparts. That isn't taking anything away from giants like Blind Lemon Jefferson, Son House, Charley Patton or Robert Johnson. It's just how the musical ball bounced at the time, with jazz being the component that helped Lang and Lonnie Johnson develop their skills thanks to working with more seasoned musicians. Blues gave us rock and roll, from the simplicity and starkness of the Delta to the work of Lonnie Johnson and later on, Charlie Christian. We'd be nowhere without all of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Glorious Lonnie Johnson 18 Jun. 2008
By D. B Pepper - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Although some hardcore Blues fans may complain about songs like "Old Rocking Chair" and "My Mother's Eyes" being on this album, the fact is that Lonnie Johnson sounded phenomenal when he crooned. This just isn't the Lonnie album for the guitar nerd; that's all. The interview at the end of the disc about his entire family being musicians is fascinating. Also, despite people often listing his birth year as 1899, he was really born in 1889, according to more modern scholarship.
