Watson a true multi-talent and this set shows it off to great advantage while still staying firmly in the blues mode throughout; he was a blazing boogie woogie pianist (check him out on the earlier version with Chuck Higgins of "Motorhead Baby"), a futuristic guitarist who influenced Bo Diddley and Ike Turner in the aker department (1954's "Space Guitar"). Watson is the lost genius of the blues and this set is a long overdue tribute to a true pioneer visionary.

John Watson Jr. (February 3, 1935 – May 17, 1996), known professionally as Johnny "Guitar" Watson, was an American blues, soul, and funk musician and singer-songwriter. A flamboyant showman and electric guitarist in the style of T-Bone Walker, Watson recorded throughout the 1950s and 1960s with some success. His creative reinvention in the 1970s with funk overtones, saw Watson have hits with "Ain't That a Bitch", "I Need It" and "Superman Lover".
Blue Masters: The Very Best of Johnny "Guitar" Watson by Ed Kopp. The first jazz record I bought was the latest Miles Davis album in the early 1970s, as a birthday present for my partner. Turns out it was an album of his music during the period when he went all off into discordant avant garde style, never finding a groove or melodic base. Neither my partner no I could listen to it. So I took it back to the record store and they let me return it and exchange for another Miles album that was more to our jazz style liking! We were so happy when Miles abandoned that style and return to melodic music
