Containing the wholly infectious disco smash "I Need It" (even if the title is unfamiliar, you'll know it when you hear it) as well as backroom slow-burners like "Superman Lover" and the sexy, after-hours "Since I Met You," AIN'T THAT A BITCH is Johnny "Guitar" Watson at the top of his mid-1970s funk game. His trademark stinging guitar solos take pride of place in a set of stylish R&B workouts that blend technical expertise with raw blues power in a compelling soul stew.
