Editorial Reviews


Raised in the church but evidently born to sing the blues, Shirley Johnson belts like a spiritual daughter of Koko Taylor, flexing her husky voice on ballads and up-tempo love songs, hitting gravel when she reaches for a higher note or pushes her volume. --Ted Drozdowski, Pulse Magazine

Product Description

From a review of Shirley's first Delmark CD Killer Diller: 'Shirley is back with that same blend of traditional good-rockin' Chicago blues, smoldering R&B and poppin' soul.' Almost all of the 14 songs on Blues Attack are new original compositions by various musicians on the CD, however there are great covers of classics Unchain My Heart and 634-5789.

5.0 out of 5 stars The new Queen of Chicago Blues? July 27, 2009
Format:Audio CD
With the passing of Koko Taylor, Shirley Johnson stands at the head of the line to assume the throne. This is my first exposure to Johnson having only recently learned of her through Living Blues magazine. I feel ashamed to be such a johnny-come-lately to this wonderful talent; what took me so long to find her especially since I am from IL ("slightly" south of Chicago) and she has played a steady 17-year gig in Chicago. Johnson gives you blues, soul, and heartbreak (You Shouldn't Have Been There/I'm Gonna Find Me A Lover) on this recording and you can feel every bit of her joy and anguish over losing a man and telling him to take a hike. Johnson is also backed by a crack band of excellent musicians. I think it is amazing that in a day of a gazillion faceless, soon to be gone "indie" bands, that such strong music can be put out, but heard by so few. Help change that by buying Blues Attack and giving Johnson the recognition she surely deserves. I'm going to immediately get her first record "Killer Diller." Help fuel a strong Blues Attack!

Could not find this C.D. anywhere in shops in U.K but I found it on Amazon! It was despatched from the U.S and arrived in a couple of weeks.
Lovely album and I thoroughly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely Fabulous! November 30, 2009

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Miss Shirley Johnson is a Blues Queen! I saw her perform at Blue Chicago and had to have her music. She had the crowd in the palm of her hand, and we loved it! Her music is true blues, and the CD takes you right back to the club in Chicago. An excellent album that I would recommend to anyone who has a desire to experience the blues done well.
