Product Description:

Liner Note Author: Steve Propes.
Recording information: Radio Recorders, Studio B (11/11/1957-02/05/1958).
This one is for the really hardcore early Johnny "Guitar" Watson fans. Watson only recorded a handful of sides for Keen between his stints at RPM and King, but VSOP has managed to expand them to a full-length release thanks to the presence of the full session tapes. This means you get every take of every song (all four of 'em!), including the breakdowns. There isn't a lot of variance between takes and some are obvious flubs. Does a casual listener really want to hear Watson go through four to ten takes of any given song? Almost certainly not. But those who are seriously into the early work of Johnny "Guitar" Watson will eat this up. ~ Sean Westergaard
