Buddy Johnson - Rock 'N Roll
Buddy Johnson And His Orchestra
Wing MGW 12005
From the back cover: So don't try to sit back and relax because your feet won't let you and your ears will agree." That's a awkward sentence if I do say so. But you get the drift that this is a rocking album. The cover is misleading, designed to look white in a effort to do crossover sales.
The vocal treatments, by both Buddy and Ella Johnson and Ricky Harper and Gil Askey are smoking.
