Here’s a slow burning blues record from Jimmy Johnson. Apparently not the Jimmy Johnson who was Syl’s older brother, despite what Wikipedia currently says. Don’t Answer The Door was Johnson’s most successful song, mainly because it was covered by none other than B.B. King just a year after it was released in 1965. It features impassioned vocals from Hank Alexander, but it’s the mournful sounding tuba which does it most for me. This is just the sort of record you can expect to hear me spin at the next Slow Drag Blues Dance night in Stoke Newington on June 6th.
