Space Guitar Master: 1952 - 1960 Recordings [Import]
- Artist: Johnny "Guitar" Watson
- Format: CD
- Release Date:5/10/2011
Import-only collection from the Blues/R&B guitarist. Some sources claim he was the first guitarist to use reverb and feedback to make music and his guitar playing tapped the full range of the instrument's potential. Watson was also a prolific songwriter and a soulful singer, who was both uptown and as gutbucket as you could possibly ask for. His singing was by turns sexy, humorous, and political. This quintessential collection gathers a variety of the great R&B recordings and hard to find Blues sides he made for different labels such as Federal, Modern, Keen, RPM, Class and Arvee Records between 1952 and 1960. This is the material upon which Johnny Guitar Watson's reputation was built. Hoo Doo.
