Product Description

Product Description

* The ultimate Johnny "Guitar" Watson rarities package, containing almost everything he cut between 1959 and 1965 for independent labels big and small.

* This period of JGW's career is less well documented than those which came before and after, although it includes Watson classics of the calibre of `Cuttin' In', `Looking Back' and his stellar recut of `Gangster Of Love'. Around half of these tracks have never been legitimately reissued on CD before.

* The brilliance of this music is matched by the booklet photography, featuring shots of JGW taken at Manchester's legendary Twisted Wheel club in 1964.

* Produced with the co-operation of the Watson Estate, this is incredible R&B that bridges the gap between Johnny's classic R&B and his widely acclaimed 60s/70s soul and funk.

3.0 out of 5 stars A NICE INSIGHT TO JOHNNY'S EARLY YEARS THAT'S NOT IN THE BEST SOUND QUAILTY BUT I'M SURE ACE RECORDS HAD A GOOD REASON FOR THIS 12 Nov. 2007
By Mr. Nightshift - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
There are several Rock 'n' Roll/R&B Tracks throughout this collection. Once you get past those tracks....This is a pretty enjoyable set. 12 (Twelve) of these tracks here are making their First-Time-On-Compact-Disc appearence! There is 1 (One) Charted Hit: "Cuttin' In" a Top 10 Billboard 1962 Smash!. If you are a REAL Johnny Guitar Watson fan you will find these tracks very enjoyable, but if you got 'Hook' on Johnny during the 70's you might want to stay far away from this. ALL Tracks on this collection are in Mono! There are STEREO VERSIONS (Masters) of 8 (Eight) of Johnny's King Recordings that was NOT used on this collection and those Tracks are: "Posin'", "Nearness Of You", "Cold, Cold Heart", "You Better Love Me", "That's The Chance You've Got To Take", "In The Evening" & "Those Lonely, Lonely Night", and "Gangster Of Love.

To hear ALL of Johnny's Complete Federal (Late 1950's) & King (Early 1960's) recordings you'd want to check out "The Very Best Of Johnny 'Guitar' Watson: Gangster Of Love" on Collectables ALL from Mono & Stereo Masters! The collection on Ace wasn't really thought out too well.
