Mr. Strassberg recorded Johnson’s performances on a reel-to-reel tape machine, therefore if you’re expecting state of the art digital reproduction than you might be disappointed with this set as the sound quality is so-so at best. Yet, if you are an archivist or ardent Blues collector than this release should serve as an important document and vital addition to your collection. Throughout, Johnson’s ringing, passionate vocals and classy counter-melody style of execution on guitar provides just a glimpse of his enormous yet at times under-recognized talents. Finally, they have created a Lonnie Johnson website (www.lonniejohnson.com) which contains the artist’s discography, transcripts and historical documents as you might also want to check out the “Blues Magnet” website which is: www.bluesmagnet.com
