Description

Roy Lee Johnson is famous as the man who wrote "Mr Moonlight," as covered by the Beatles in 1964. By the early-70s he had developed an incendiary live act, which prompted Muscle Shoals Sound's Jimmy Johnson to sign him to Stax. 1973 debut Roy Lee Johnson and The Villagers, is one of the most consistent funk albums of all time, in-demand since the late 80s for its uncompromising blend of funk and sample-friendly numbers. Full of tight grooves and red-hot guitar licks a la James Brown and the JB's, worth the price of admission alone is the astounding "Patch It Up" and "The Dryer," but every cut here is a monster. This reissue marks the album's first availability on vinyl since its original 1973 release.
