KING JOHNSON

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.   Listen
