 Stellar spiritual soul from Samuel Jonathan Johnson -- an artist who only ever cut this one full album (in 1978 for Columbia Records) during his career, an album we'd rank right up there with the best ‘70s work by jazzy R&B contemporaries like Roy Ayers or Norman Connors!  The record's got a wonderful blend of mellow moments and more groove-heavy tracks -- all handled with wonderful keyboards from Johnson, who gets nice and spacey at times. Our Real Gone/Dusty Groove reissue features liner notes by his daughter (and fine singer in her own right) Yolanda Johnson, with added photos and remastering by Maria Triana at Battery Studios in NYC. Very tasty, long-requested and oft-sampled ‘70s soul sounds!
