I've been a fan of Red Johnson's ever since I first heard "There's A Grand Ole Opry Show Playing Somewhere" he made a hit for Capitol Records. This guy is a natural country singer. He's a natural country guitar picker. He's a natural country songwriter. I say this because Red Johnson knows how to write a 'story' in a song, and his lead track on this CD is incredibly good. "The Old Man At A Table" is one of those 'story' songs that will bring a tear to your eye, and at the same time give the listener one of the best 'tips' of living a full life, anyone is likely to ever hear. What's also neat about Red Johnson is his ability to get a good 'attention getter' cover on his CD's. This particular one has an old man at a table, and it just happens to be Red Johnson. I can't believe how I was so simply moved by the way this wonderful old-timey traditional country CD was put together. Red's voice stands out in the mix, just as it used to be in 'real' country music. Not devoured and hidden in loud outrageous noisy instrumental music makers. On the contrary, this Red Johnson CD is mixed just right all the way through. That's so important today, because Red is recording for an older buying market, and he knows exactly what he's doing in making this work for him. I'm not sure where he cut this, but the studio work is fine, so are the musicians though they are mostly better known playing in the Rio Grande Valley and around Minnesota than they are in the recording studio. On lead guitar is Chuck Peterson and Kenny Nelson. On harmonica is Don Grubb. On steel-guitar (and quite well done) is Kermit Clarin. On Acoustic guitar, bass, drums, strings, piano, and lead vocals is Red Johnson. Judy Fasse helped him out on a couple songs with some vocal harmony. Red has won some accolades at our festival in LeMars, Iowa, and this CD is definitely going to the Rural Roots Music Commission for "Traditional Country CD of the Year" award. Good luck Red I hope you get it, you are very deserving. Red makes his home (in the summer time) in Minnesota, and that makes Minnesota a very lucky state. We will hope to be seeing him at the LeMars Festival in 2012, but he is also very popular on the Minnesota State Fair. Not my cup of tea to get too involved in political issues, but Red's "Pardon Me For Looking In" hits the nerve just right. This could go 'viral' as they say on the Internet. All and all this is one of Red Johnson's best 'new' projects. Highly recommended to anyone who really likes their country......"Country." Visit Red at his website www.redjohnson.net and get acquainted with one of our really good country artists from the upper Midwest.
