Lonnie Johnson - Another Night To Cry

Lonnie Johnson, a talented vocalist and guitarist who chose to spend much of his life playing blues (although in the 1920s he recorded with some of the top jazz stars), had his fifth recording for Prestige/Bluesville (a solo set) reissued on this CD. "Blues After Hours" is an instrumental that shows off his jazz roots and many of the 11 songs (all of which are Johnson originals) have spots for his guitar. Since there is only around 34 minutes on this set (which could have been combined on one CD with the music from another LP) and none of the individual songs even reach four minutes, this is not one of the more essential Lonnie Johnson releases but it does have its strong moments.- by Scott Yanow, AMG

  1. Hey man, really appreciate what you do, but not one of your downloads has ever worked for me. They always come up as errors and/or corrupted files. Is there anyway you could reup this to mediafire or something similar? I really enjoy the music you select, it's just a hassle to have to go scour the internet for these albums because the dl links never work. Thanks again for what you do.
