22 Sound Records

Includes 16-page booklet. Despite a lack of any major hits, Johnny 'Guitar" Watson has long been recognized as one of the true geniuses of blues and R&B. This set is a long overdue tribute to a visionary pioneer. A truly mufti-talented artist, he was a blazing boogie-woogie pianist, though he is best remembered as an innovative guitarist who influenced Bo Diddley and Ike Turner. Some sources claim he was the first guitarist to use reverb and feedback to make music and his guitar playing tapped the full range of the instrument's potential. Watson was also a prolific songwriter and a soulful singer. This CD puts together the best blues sides he made for labels such as Federal, Modern, Keen, RPM, Class and Arvee Records between 1952 and 1960. CD EDITION. 28 TRACKS. TT: 73:55. INCLUDES 16-PAGE BOOKLET
