(Fuel) 16 tracks (64:51) from the archives of Gulf Coast Music, linernotes by Bill Dahl, remastering by Jesse Fishman.
Blessed with a grand, sophisticated vocal technique and a humongous range spanning several octaves that sometimes leaped into a stratospheric falsetto, Johnny Adams traveled a stylistic path approximately
180 degrees removed from the infectious New Orleans rhythm and blues of Fats Domino, Professor Longhair, and Lloyd Price.
Seldom did Adams' music incorporate the joyous syncopated second-line rhythms indigenous to the Crescent City. He was a world-class soul balladeer whose approach oozed style and subtlety.
