Lonnie Johnson, Happy New Year, Darling / Backwater Blues

This is the perfect record for the new year, 2010! Lonnie Johnson and Happy New Year, Darling on King. I wish it was my idea to post such a relevant title, but it was just coincidence. When the Lonnie Johnson records started appearing in the stacks, I took notice. The thing that sticks out in this recording is his voice and the guitar tone. The track Happy New Year, Darling has three instruments, guitar, bass, and piano. Lonnie is way up front in the recording and has such a great voice. Its an electric guitar, but I wonder what style….
