Lonnie In The '40s & '50s

Lonnie Johnson- Me And My Crazy Self

Album Review:
"With a firm emphasis on the less schmaltzy side of Johnson's 1947-1952 stint at Cincinnati's King Records, this 20-tracker finds the blues pioneer coming into the age of electric blues and R&B quite adroitly. His dignified vocal style similarly weathered the ensuing decades nicely -- "You Can't Buy Love," "Friendless Blues," and the title track are bittersweet outings sporting multiple levels of subtlety."

Thank you very much this album is very good.
One problem though I think this album should have 20 songs and this file has only 13.

Looks like the missing songs are on the 4th disc of The Original Guitar Wizard, so I decided to save them as songs from the latter album. I'll have to upload that soon. Thanks, Barak.
