June 28, 2017 Record of the Day

As a boy, Johnny Guitar Watson promised his grandfather he wouldn’t play “the devil’s music.” Oops! He began touring with Larry Williams of “Boney Maronie” fame. He also played with Little Richard and Frank Zappa. With his Fender Stratocaster, he brought Funk to a new level in the 1970’s. The “Johnny Guitar Watson album,” released on King Records in 1963, can get you $800.00 today.
