Album Notes
JOHNNY JOHNSTON - hot fingerpickin' slide guitar and down home vocals

Johnny Johnston has been entertaining audiences with his down home vocals and hot fingerpickin’ slide guitar for the past 25 years. In the 1980’s, he honed his blues slide guitar style as a solo performer in southern Georgia and northern Florida. In the 90’s, he moved to the west coast and played electric slide guitar in blues bands in San Francisco and along the north and central coast of California. In 2001, Johnny completed a very successful tour of Europe. These days, Johnny Johnston regularly performs original and traditional blues, ragtime, gospel and jazz standards. Now that Johnny Johnston has recorded his CD “hot fingerpickin’ slide guitar” you no longer have to drive to Mississippi or New Orleans to enjoy real down home music – listen to this CD and you’ll agree - Johnny Johnston delivers!

What a great sound.
In Adelaide South Australia we have community radio station that has a blues hour Saturday nights. One night he played some tracks from a live performance. I was hooked and looked you up on the net and ordered you CD. I love you guitar sound and your voice. We have just had a guitar festival in Adelaide. Love to see you tour Australia.

Best Slide Guitar
I got this CD on line and I listen to it non stop. I love the slide guitar sound.

red dog

great solo slide
Very good alternating bass bottom end with lots of good slide on top of that. Open tuned acoustic, reso, electric and perhaps a lapsteel(?)too! Good stuff all the way around - buy this one!


Coveres a wide range of "Bues territory"
For a CD with only 14 songs, Johnny Johnston coveres a wide range of "Blues" territory here, all songs are different styles,and the slide guitar rings sharp as a bell. This CD is only a sampler, Johnny. . . when is the next one coming out? Sign me up!
