Johnny Adams, a name familiar to most anyone who has ever purchased a southern soul compilation, worked his magic last Friday night. An inspired choice, my friend served up  Adams’s Heart & Soul LP on wax while cracking into a bottle of Jameson just before dinner. The album kicks off with one of the best paeans to missing Georgia, while in Los Angeles, that I know of. Thanks Matt and Jenn.

  1. Good God. Beautiful. Thanks for this.

  2. One of the greatest singers of all time, especially his last several albums, starting with “Walking On A Tightrope”. The Doc Pomus album is amazing.

  3. Years ago, I dated a woman WITH musical taste–crazy as a loon, but great musical taste–and when we broke up, she took the good shit, like my Johnny Adams records! I will NEVER date another woman with musical taste, but I will go buy lots of the old stuff I had at emusic right now!!

  4. Funny story: Matt introduced me to this record in Seattle (Rain City misses Matt and Jennifer dearly!) also over a bottle of Jameson. Great record!

  5. Thanks for this. A refreshing song that forced me to explore more of this guy. That’s why I come here.

  6. Superb soul – loving it, thanks
