A set that's billed as "the Claude Johnson story", and for good reason too – as singer Claude Johnson is a key part of both groups here – the west coast doo wop group The Genies
, and the early soul duo of Don
– as well as a few other acts that are included here – all presented in a really rich array of tracks from an artist who never fully got his due! We've always loved the work of Don
, and know The Genies
from one big hit – and we're stunned at the wealth of other material here – a 26 track collection of titles that includes "There Goes That Train", "Crazy Love", "The First Time", "Who's That Knocking", and "Twistin Pneumonia" by The Genies
; "Pot Luck", "Chicken Necks", "What's Your Name", "Magic Wand", "Two Fools Are We", and "What I Really Meant To Say" by Don
– plus "Mama Blow Your Top" and "Scuse Me Lady" by Roy Hammond & The Genies
, and "It's Getting Cold" and "Is You Is" by The Skylarks.
