  • Johnny Guitar Watson - The Funk Anthology

    2:34:29

    The Funk Anthology compiles the best of blues icon Johnny Guitar Watson's recordings for the DJM label from 1970 to 1981. Also included are three tracks off Watson's 1994 comeback album, Bow Wow. A hugely influential artist, Watson was often overshadowed by his more well-known contemporaries including Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Sly Stone, and George Clinton. While Watson got his start rockin' out in the '50s with such blues crossover classics as Too Tired, Hot Little Mama, and the mind-blowingly innovative instrumental Space Guitar, he made an even bigger mark in the '70s playing his unique and equally innovative brand of funk. Changing from a slick pompadour to a groovy afro and three-piece suits, Watson reimagined himself as a blues pimp extraordinaire and backed up his bravado with musical chops that had already made good on the developments of T-Bone Walker, Clarence Gatemouth Brown, and Ray Charles. Referring to himself as the Original Gangster of Love, Watson's funk recordings found the multi-instrumentalist/vocalist mixing jazz harmonies, blues, soul, raw funk, disco, and R&B all into his own unique style. This is humorous, raunchy, rhythmically compelling, and melodically infectious music that benefits as much from Watson's juicy synthesizer skills as his adept guitar playing. Barring some horn section and drum parts, Watson often played all the instruments on his recordings, and tracks such as Ain't That a Bitch, Funk Beyond the Call of Duty, and It's All About the Dollar Bill prefigure work by the similarly inclined funk iconoclast Prince. Also notable is his 1980 rap track Telephone Bill, which certainly stands as one of the earliest recorded examples of the genre. Featuring gatefold packaging that showcases all of Watson's iconic over-the-top album covers, a booklet full of photos, and lovingly written liner notes by music biographer David Ritz, The Funk Anthology is the definitive tribute to a true funk original.
    Johnny Guitar Watson was renowned as a bluesman during the 1950s and '60s, but in the '70s the vocalist/multi-instrumentalist turned his talents to funk Funk Anthology songs. As the cover of 2005's FUNK ANTHOLOGY playfully illustrates, the Texas-born performer was essentially a one-man band, indulging in self-penned, fun-loving, groove-based tunes. Focusing on Watson's funkiest, wackiest material, this well-selected two-disc collection spans 1976 to '94, with most tracks dating back to disco's heyday in the late '70s and early '80s. Funk Anthology CD music is a 2-disc set with 31 songs.

    Liner Note Authors: David Ritz; Virginia Ginny G Watson.

    Personnel: Johnny Guitar Watson (vocals, various instruments, guitar, keyboards); Emery Thomas (whistle, drums, tambourine, bells, siren, background vocals); Paul Dunmall, Albert Wing, Knud Jensen, Billy Hales, Charles Green (saxophone); Pete Martin, Walt Fowler , Joe Cambell (trumpet); Steve Baxter, Tommy Robertson (trombone); Oji Pierce (keyboards, programming); Deon Estus (bass guitar); James Johnson, Rudy Copeland, Darcus Thomas, Marci Thomas, Randie Redman (background vocals).

    Johnny Guitar Watson - Blues Masters: The Very Best Of J.G.W.
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Johnny Guitar Watson was a blues/R&B/funk pioneer, both in sound and music, and this 18-track collection zeroes in on his bluesiest and earliest sides. 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 numerous players from Bo Diddley and Ike Turner to the later Jimi Hendrix in the instrument-as-noisemaker department (1954's Space Guitar) and a soulful singer who was both uptown and as gutbucket as you could possibly ask for (1962's That's the Chance You've Got to Take and 1955's Three Hours Past Midnight which also sports one mean and spare guitar solo), an artist who understood low down blues and be-bop jazz and came up with his own melding of it. Watson is the lost genius of the blues and this set is a long overdue tribute to a true pioneer visionary.

  • Johnny Guitar Watson - 3 Hours Past Midnight

    45:44

    3 Hours Past Midnight CD music contains a single disc with 16 songs. A collection of 50's recordings originally released on the RPM and Modern labels, Johnny Guitar Watson's mid-'50s catalog for the Bihari Brothers' Flair logo is unassailable, with searing rockers like Oh Baby, Hot Little Mama, and Ruben and the blistering slow blues title cut. Unfortunately, this 16-song collection utilizes inferior alternate takes on several of the most important titles 3 Hours Past Midnight CD music. On the positive side, it contains both sides of his rare 1959 single for Class, One Kiss b/w The Bear. 3 Hours Past Midnight album for sale. ~ Bill Dahl


    In 1955, Johnny switched to the Modern/RPM label, the first session producing 3 epic releases, including the simmering Hot Little Mama and I Love To Love You was more brilliance unleashed.

    Blues lovers have probably heard She Moves Me numerous times (Kim Wilson did a version), but always remember that Watson did the knockout original. Ironically, Watson’s most successful recording for Modern was his re-working of Earl King’s New Orleans-flavored Those Lonely Lonely Nights.

    Then there was Ain’t Gonna Hush, practically as wild and woolly as his feedback breakthrough Space Guitar. Motorhead Baby (recently covered by Jimmie Vaughan) is a souped-up version of the version he'd recorded on Federal.


    A seminal influence on the next generation of electric guitarists - including Hendrix, Johnny Guitar Watson pioneered the use of feedback and had an attack that was second to none. His lacerating fretwork is all over these late 50s cuts.

    Frank Zappa stated that Watson's 1956 song Three Hours Past Midnight inspired me to become a guitarist. Zappa also often named Three Hours Past Midnight as his favorite record. When Zappa's family heard that Lou Reed would be inducting Zappa in the Rock 'N Roll Hall of Fame in 1994, they suggested Johnny Guitar Watson as a better choice.

    Jimmie Vaughan, brother of Stevie Ray Vaughan, is quoted as saying: When my brother Stevie and I were growing up in Dallas, we idolized very few guitarists. We were highly selective and highly critical. Johnny 'Guitar' Watson was at the top of the list, along with Freddie, Albert and B.B. King. He made magic.

  • Johnny Guitar Watson -Master Funk

    29:45

    Released during the height of his laid-back space funk era, Johnny drops a batch of mostly instrumental numbers with himself providing guitar, fender rhodes, synths, clavinet & organ in that style we all know and love. This is the 1st of two albums that Johnny Guitar cut under the “Watsonian Institute” moniker for DJM Records in 78′ & 79′. Sadly, As times rapidly changed, So did his style on later albums after leaving the label on his solo projects.
    In 1978, Johnny “Guitar” Watson‘s backup band decided to record a project as the Watsonian Institute. Master Funk is the only LP that was released under that name, and for all intents and purposes, this is very much a Johnny “Guitar” Watson album. In addition to doing all of the producing and arranging, the late singer/guitarist wrote most of the material and contributed his share of lead vocals. So not surprisingly, his stamp is all over Master Funk. The main difference between this record and the hit albums that Watson had been recording under his own name in the 1970s is the fact that this release has a stronger jazz influence. While 1976’s Ain’t That a Bitch, 1977’s A Real Mother for Ya, and 1977’s Funk Beyond the Call of Duty are funk/soul albums first and foremost, Master Funk is an album in which funk, soul, and soul-jazz live under the same roof. Instrumentals like “Dr. John’s Delight” and “Coming Around” are in the soul-jazz vein, and the jazz influence is also present on some of the tunes that Watson sings on.

  • Johnny Guitar Watson - Giant

    34:14

    The disco period in Johnny Guitar Watson's catalog was spotty at best. You gotta hand it to Watson; during this period he maintained a sense of humor with tongue firmly in cheek. The Gangster of Love refused to become a dinosaur R&B oldies artist, referred to only in Whatever Happened To... articles. That doesn't mean, however, that this material is recommended. Giant includes a few fun moments in the form of the reworked but still blues-drenched Gangster of Love and You Can Stay But the Noise Must Go
