Leroy Johnson - Okeh 6813 (1951)

Not finding any information about Leroy Johnson using the regular web resources, I went to my father's Okeh R&B CD box set to see if the booklet contained anything.

It did.

It said, "All that is known about Johnson is that he played guitar." And there was a picture.

Hmm...anyone know more?

Someone did find a bit more: Johnson recorded as Leroy "Country" Johnson for Houston's Freedom Recordings in 1949 accompanied by bassist Nunu Pitts.

Recorded in New York on June 29, 1951.
