    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.

    Johnny Guitar Watson - Funk Beyond The Call Of Duty

    33:47

    Tripped-out funk from Johnny – very much in his I Got To Ta Ta Ya Baby mode, with the guitar skipping around keyboards in a mellow Bay Area kind of way!
    Johnny's gone way way past his bluesy roots here – into a sublime blend of soul and funk that's all crafted with just the right amount of lightly spacey touches.The Watson vocals are totally on the money throughout – sliding into the mix in that seductive way that often has Johnny singing beautifully alongside his guitar.
    Having played with the likes of Frank Zappa, Little
    Richard, Johnny Otis, Sam Cooke & George Duke, Johnny Guitar Watson certainly can be described as a Soul/Funk Legend. Johnny made his guitar sound ike no other on earth, Jimi Hendrix clearly took note β€œThose things Jimi was doing, I started that shit” Mr Watson once said. And who are we to argue!!

    Best old blues: Johnny Guitar Watson. Every Day I Have The Blues, LA, 1971

    13:04

    The oldest live recording of Watson, hard to find bootleg, presented here on YouTube for he first time. Part of an unidentified recording of a blues evening in venue the Ash Grove in Los Angeles, in 1971. Johnny Guitar Watson presents a cover of BB King, Every Day I Have The Blues (downloaded around fifteen years ago with KaZaa, probably taken from a local radio broadcast).
    It's a pity video is missing. Amateur camera's were not available those days. So, I present on photo of Watson during the concert (made by the then 16 years old Dave Alvin), and the front and back cover of my biography.

    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

    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.
