  • Johnson Lonnie - Blues by Lonnie Johnson + Losing Game (CD)


    For more than 40 years, the legendary Lonnie Johnson played blues, jazz, and ballads in his own unique style. His melodic conception was far more advanced than most of his prewar peers. Johnsons intricate, fluid guitar playing inspired a long line of musicians from Charlie Christian to Lowell Fulson, and even Robert Johnson as well.

    In his sixties, Lonnie Johnsons voice remained as powerful as ever, piercing through to the listener with its emotional potency and lyrical content.

    This essential release presents two of Johnsons finest studio albums for Prestiges Bluesville label during his early-60s comeback: the great Blues by Lonnie Johnson (1960), and the equally magnificent Losing Game (1961). Recorded by Rudy Van Gelder at his studio in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, both LPs display greater sensitivity and maturity than the seminal masterpieces Johnson cut between the 1920s and the 1940s.

    These two sensational albums have been remastered and packaged together in this special collectors edition, which also contains a bonus track from the same period, an excellent version of W.C. Handys St. Louis Blues.
