ARTIST: Lonnie Johnson LABEL: Okeh 8557 TITLES: Blue Ghost Blues / Life Saver Blues CONDITION: V+ DESCRIPTION: One of the scarcer Lonnie Johnson Okehs. If you didn't read the label, you would not guess the guitar on "Blue Ghost Blues" is Lonnie Johnson. He plays more like a country bluesman instead of using any of his characteristic runs and fills. These sides are from a exploratory November 1927 session during which he recorded other guitar instrumentals and untitled sides many of which were not issued. I can't recall any other sides by him where he played in this style. "Life Saver Blues" guitar is typical Lonnie. Music clear and strong with tics from small scratches and a 1" lam on "Life Saver Blues". WAIT FOR SECOND INVOICE - THE ONE NOT AUTOMATICALLY GENERATED BY EBAY IMMEDIATELY AFTER CLOSE OF AUCTION.
