Close Personal Friend [Import]
(Bonus CD, 2PC)
2008 expanded reissue of this album from the Pop Rocker, not to be confused with the Blues legend who had passed away some decades earlier. Having auditioned for the slot made vacant by Mick Taylor, Robert Johnson, at the age of 23, was in his opinion too young and too American to join the Rolling Stones. In 1974, he secured the lead guitar slot in Who bass player John Entwistle's Ox where he stayed for the next three years. In 1978 the world was finally exposed to Robert Johnson, the solo artist whose two albums were released in UK on the Ensign Label (bonus album 'The Memphis Demos' was released in 1980'.) He toured in support of Close Personal Friend opening for amongst others the Police and the Knack but 'bad vibes and bad management' doomed his band and albums to a premature fate. Crank up loud and enjoy. 17 tracks. Angel Air.
