A stunning guitar player, Johnny "Guitar" Watson also had a skill for reinvention, morphing from a top 1950s west coast blues session player into a monster R&B and funk player in the '70s, '80s, and early '90s. This set combines two fairly maverick albums, 1981's Johnny Guitar Watson & the Family Clone, where Watson sings and plays all the parts, producing a minor classic, and 1994's thundering but surprisingly benign Bow Wow, which combines disco funk with what could pass for early rap.
