Product Description

Review

[Johnie Lewis] recorded an album ... released [in 1971].... That LP provides the first 12 tracks on this disc; the final six are previously unissued songs from the same sessions.

Lewis's music was untouched by ... [Chicago's] prevalent styles, remaining firmly entrenched in a much earlier era.... In his slide work and his repertoire, [he] reaches beyond the blues to encompass religious, pop, and "folk" elements.... [He uses] his guitar to follow and finish his vocal lines. Of the "new" tracks, four are guitar pieces.... What Johnie Lewis's output lacks in quantity ... is made up for in its quality--even if you already have the original LP, you should not miss this CD. -- Living Blues

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I had recently purchased a missippi john hurt collection,which I love...and stumbled across this cd in customers who also bought....This cd and the music whithin is amazing......for anyone who is looking for blues music with the back porch country vibe. I really cant think of anything that comes close to this....maybe jeff buckleys version of parchment farm blues to give an idea of the style of playing, not so much the voice......but if you like john hurt or son house you shouuld find these recordings a godsend, if you're looking for something more along the lines of muddy waters this may not be your thing. BUt try it out anyway.

How can I be the only person in the world that hasn't listened to Johnie Lewis! This man will make you grin all night and then let you know what life is all about with his sound. This is some deep American Southern slide guitar at its best. It takes a life time to get this talented with a slide and Johnie is in heaven slidin his guitar and wait'in for us all to listen to him. I search blues and slide guitar and have purchased much of the best but Johnie Lewis is a natural. He'll take and set you down and run the sounds through the soul. You'll never come back - this is a man that is true southern slide. You'll love it --- give it a chance and listen.
