Indeed, best kept secret when you know his first album dates from 1968...
Although he gives it a personal touch, he and Ari Eisinger are the only guitarists who know how to play Lonnie Johnson material.
Thanks for the upload.

Carl - you should check out Willie Salomon (www.williesalomon.com) who does a very fine job with Lonnie's material.

As did Tony 'Top' Topham once upon a time. I haven't laid eyes on Tony for about 15 years but when I last did I was so impressed with two of his LJ instrumental renditions I gave him my complete Document set of LJ CDs!

Gee Carl I thought you did a pretty fair job yer own self.
