Benny Johnson - Visions Of Paradise - Today

70s SoulPosted by Martin Tue, May 11, 2010 17:33:31

Remember buying this from an awfully nice guy that had (still has I hope) a little record shop on Hanway Street in London which I used to frequent during my lunchbreaks. The strangest thing was that he had a daughter who lived in Sweden, in Linköping I believe, of all places. If you know him, do give him the heads up on this.

Anyway, ancedotes aside, this is a top notch 70s soul recording lifted from the much sought after 1973 album with the same name. Backed by Julius Brockington & The United Chair Band, Johnson turns out one magical performance on what seems to be his only album. Every track on it is a winner and since it has recently been re-issued, there is no longer a must to shell out hundreds of dollars for an original copy. Strangely the singles lifted from the album "Visions Of Paradise" / "Stop me" and "Give It Up" / "Baby I Love You" seem much easier to track down than the album itself, I wonder why? Enjoy!

"Visions Of Paradise"

Ps. Does anybody know if this is the same guy that recorded as Benny johnson & The Soul Serenaders on Tarx? ds
