Jr. Johnny - Dancing With the Devil

Named after the late great John Lee Hooker, Jr. Johnny got his blues start playing in garage bands in New York. He managed to relocate to the San Francisco area after he served as an MP in Vietnam. He made a name for himself performing with greats such as Mike Bloomfield and Jimmy Witherspoon. Jr. Johnny used to tour on the road exclusively, but with family and educational responsibilities he has had to do a variety of odd jobs including carpentry and wine master. Jr. has released around six CDs; his latest entitled "The Drifter" is available on his website.


1. Hot, Sweet and Dirty-rockin tune with nice guitar work
2. A New Start-mellow rumba type of sound
*3. My Addiction-great harp and piano; reminds me of Sonny Boy sound
4. Dancin' with the Devil-slow tune w/ organ in background
5. So Hot-slow bluesy tune
*6. Hot Sauce-instrumental-jumpin harp just like I like!
7. Can She Be-slow heartbroken blues
8. Knocked Me Down-jumpin tune/good guitar riff
9. Take a Chance-like the drums and harp on this up tempo track
10. Let's Go Home-slow dancing song
11. Bohemians After Dark-slower type instrumental
