4.0 out of 5 stars Go Johnnie go go go! May 4, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Johnnie Johnson is simply a fantastic piano player with a style all his own. Let's face facts - It was Johnnie Johnson who wrote such chuck berry classics as Johnny B. good although they were credited to berry for a long time. Finally Johnson decided to strike out on his own 30 years later and we all should be greatful that he did. Johnnie B. bad is his second solo album and it is just great to listen to. His first album, bluehand Johnnie, while filled with hot piano licks, really sounded forced and uninspiring and almost electronic. Finally with this album he got it all together and just played what he wanted to play and everyone who sat in with him to make this record sounds like they are having a great time. for me the standout track is the opener, "Tanqueray." I could just play that song all day long. It has a nice raw sound to it - almost like a spontaneous jam session. The album carries this feel through almost every track so it sounds like you are listening to a group of guys playing the blues just to have some fun, but the piano player just happens to be the one and only Johnnie Johnson. pick this CD up and you will very quickly see why Johnson easily deserves to be a well-respected musician in his own right - Chuck berry or no chuck berry.

5.0 out of 5 stars The most fun R & B I know... September 27, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The whole album is a celebration. Tons of fun. After once or twice I guarantee you'll be singing along. And after hearing "Stepped in What?" you'll never look at the sidewalk the same way again...

5.0 out of 5 stars Here's that cat August 29, 2003
Format:Audio CD
Ever listen to Chuck Berry music, and when hearing the fantastic piano in the background wonder who that cat was?
Here's that cat!
This is an infectious collection of music that's as fun to listen to, as it sounds like it was to record!
After hearing this, I can't wait to get my hands on some more Johnnie Johnson!

4.0 out of 5 stars A valuable addition if you're into music history June 19, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
There's some amazing and unsung talent out there. It was wonderful to acquire Johnnie's music and to experience the fabric that made Chuck Berry successful, not only his talent, but the talent behind his success.
