Richard Johnston Update

Got this update. The guy may not be familiar to ya’ll, but his last album was in 2002. He’s a street musician that carries on in the Mississippi Hill Country blues tradition, and is a one man band. Here’s a Youtube clip of him (best heard with headphones instead of computer speakers).

Here’s the update from an e-mail.

“Hello everyone,

Please be reassured that “10 Miles” is real and soon to be released. I am trying as hard as I can to finish by the end of June and have no other excuse for this enormous delay; all revolves around my
inexperience in starting and using a studio.
I will also say, the music will certainly be the best I have to offer, ever. This cd will certainly be the most important of my career/life.

    What an awesome sound, even coming through the computer speakers! Thanks for sharing.

    Yeah, he’s great. We were going to play one of his songs at our wedding for our dance (Miss Maybelle, which we still consider “our song”) but thought better of it, and actually forgot to have a dance anyway. Love this guy….

    And here it is 2009 and still no sign of “10 Miles” Will it ever be released? Waiting oh so patiently.

      I know what you mean. He’s been promoting this album for almost three years now. But, whattya gonna do. If you have an e-mail address I can send you a boot from a recent show of his – soundboard quality and not bad stuff at all.
