I'm not much aware of the later career of LONNIE JOHNSON, other than he
recorded a few albums for Prestige/Bluesville.

Found the following album,  would like to know something about it, and
Johnson's later years……

don’t recognize the catalog series - is this Canadian ???

There is a HARMONY (Canada) album on auction, same tracks (usually Harmony
deleted a couple) ???



Best wishes, Thomas.
