Overview

The 25 tracks on The Very Best of Johnny Guitar Watson: Gangster of Love were originally recorded in the '50s and contain the majority of his extraordinary gritty blues hits of the era, including "Motor Head Baby," "Those Lonely Lonely Nights," and "Gangster of Love." The absolute highlight is "Space Guitar," a track that was not only way ahead of its time, but inspired Watson, known at the time as a pianist, to make the guitar his primary instrument. Those who are checking out this era of Watson's discography for the first time may want to pass on this disc and instead pick up Rhino's The Very Best of Johnny Guitar Watson since it contains the essential "Three Hours Past Midnight."
