Music You Don't Know You Like Yet
2009-05-11I remember seeing Shirley Johnson at the famous Blue Chicago club so many years ago in the windy city and thought she belted out some of the finest Chicago style blues I had ever heard. After 6 years between recordings the Killer Driller returns with a set that combines the great sound of Chicago blues with some hot R&B. Shirley’s voice has certain smoothness to it with the ability to still deliver a blues gospel that would make a church choir stand up and sing Hallelujah. Most of the tracks on this disc are Chicago originals, several were written by Shirley’s good friend and fellow musician Maurice Jon Vaughn. Shirley also delivers an excellent cover of Eddie Floyd’s “654-5789” and “Unchain My Heart” a track recorded by both Ray Charles and Joe Cocker. My advice is if you are under the influence of a Blues Attack consider yourself lucky.
