A great return to the spacey soul that made Johnny Watson so great in the 70s – a set that turns down the bass and brings up Johnny's voice – letting his wonderful persona drift and flow amidst a range of mellow-grooving tracks! The album's got some great echoes of territory that Johnny first explored during his Fantasy years – that style that took his older blues and smoothed it out – compressing all the elements together in a really great way, yet without some of the overdone funky bits that could sometimes hurt later Watson work from these years. Johnny's charm is undeniable throughout – wickedly soulful and clever, and not nearly as silly as you'd think from the album's goofy cover. Titles include "In The World", "What The Hell Is This?", "Strung Out", and "Cop & Blow". CD features 2 previously unreleased bonus tracks – "Watsonian Institute" and "The Funk If I Know".  © 1996-2015, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.


Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.
