DIGITAL RELEASE FOR KING JOHNSON, LUCK SO STRANGE

Landslide Records is pleased and excited to announce a digital-only worldwide release for LUCK SO STRANGE from the funky Atlanta party band, KING JOHNSON. Released originally on CD in 2000, LUCK SO STRANGE has been out of print for 15 years but will now be available through multiple online sources. Led by guitarist/vocalist Oliver Wood, who later partnered with his brother Chris to form The Wood Brothers, and vocalist/bassist Chris Long, King Johnson presents a heady mix of New Orleans style funk, gritty jazz and percolating boogie-woogie. The album is armed with great songs including “Luckiest Man” which The Wood Brothers later recorded, and an appearance by Col. Bruce Hampton on “Ralph.” With distinctive rhythms and a blistering horn section, LUCK SO STRANGE shows off an excellent band at its very best.

About Landslide Records

 

Michael and Annie Rothschild
Landslide president Michael Rothschild and his daughter Annie, the label’s vice president at the musically exciting 2013 New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival.

Landslide Records was established in 1981 by its President Michael Rothschild, beginning with the now rare release “Outside Looking Out” by Col. Bruce Hampton & the Late Bronze Age. The label, initially based in Atlanta GA and now in Fernandina Beach, FL, is dedicated to producing, releasing and marketing Southern roots-oriented music. In addition to further work from Hampton, the label has issued debut albums in the 1980’s by Paul Barrere & The Bluesbusters, Webb Wilder and the Beatnecks, and Widespread Panic plus critically acclaimed blues by Tinsley Ellis and The Heartfixers and the great soul shouter Nappy Brown. Throughout the 1990’s to present, Landslide has released a wealth of strong Southern talent, including The Derek Trucks Band’s first album, new Webb Wilder sounds, on both CD and DVD, diverse Americana projects by ex-BR-549 leader Gary Bennett, folk singer/songwriter Jan Smith, bluegrass hybrid Blueground Undergrass, plus the eclectic group, Scrapomatic with Mike Mattison, Carolina beach music favorites Jim Quick & Coastline, internationally acclaimed bluesmen Delta Moon, and Florida’s swamp blues master Damon Fowler. In 2021 Landslide celebrated its 40TH ANNIVERSARY with a 2 CD set comprised of acts who have appeared on the label since its beginning. And more to come!
