Roy Lee Johnson first came to attention as the occasional vocalist with the Interns, a R&B band led by blues shouter Dr Feelgood, aka Piano Red. Johnson's little heard treasures of Southern soul are finally served up on one CD. Everything he recorded for Okeh, Columbia, Josie and Philips is here. We have the original Mister Moonlight, heard by millions on the Beatles' fourth American LP, the shimmering Love Is Amazing, recorded by the Ohio Untouchables and Robert Ward, and the iconic When A Guitar Plays The Blues, revived by major axe men like Roy Buchanan and Albert Collins. There are gritty dance workouts, lilting soul ballads, ferocious instrumentals and devastating deep wrist-slashers from Muscle Shoals. 30 tracks.
