Johnny "Guitar" Watson - Same a.k.a. With Orchestra And Strings

Johnny "Guitar" Watson's first lp in glorious mono. Some nice tracks but bit of a disappointment if you're expecting something wild like I was.
It was amongst a handful of King LP's ( Freddie and Albert) that I bought recently and it's just been sold thru eBay and paid for the other LP's that I'm keeping so that's o.k.

In the 70s Gusto in Nashville produced a facsimile repress.

According to the notes, Gusto "re-recorded two of Johnny's big hits (Those Lonely, Lonely Feelings and Gangster of Love). Why? Bizarre!
