(Ruf Records) / Platinum Distribution) I saw Jimmy Johnson perform at the University of Dayton a few years back (I still have the poster) and it was awesome. Johnson was a true roots blues musician, and he had a great back-up band. He nailed the Mississippi Delta cold with his relaxed, easy-going vocals and guitar style. Unfortunately, I don’t know where that went on this album. He seems to have gone blues-disco, if you will, and the results are … well … not good. A few tracks feature a Hammond B3 and/or Wurlitzer; those come closest to the roadhouse feel. Too slick production and a lacking sense of direction make this release poor at best.
