The disco period in Johnny "Guitar" Watson's catalog was spotty at best. You gotta hand it to Watson; during this period he maintained a sense of humor with tongue firmly in cheek. The Gangster of Love refused to become a dinosaur "R&B" oldies artist, referred to only in "Whatever Happened To..." articles. That doesn't mean, however, that this material is recommended. Giant includes a few fun moments in the form of the reworked but still blues-drenched "Gangster of Love" and "You Can Stay But the Noise Must Go," but doesn't make up for the awful "Guitar Disco," which is as hokey as it sounds. ~ Al Campbell
