Johnny Barnes on Clearmont

Johnny Barnes - Big Johnny Blues (Clearmont C-501), 1962

This is one of the records mentioned in my previous post about Marshall Ellis. Clearmont was one of the labels he operated in Memphis. This disc was released in 1962 and was the first of only two singles that appeared on this label. Who Johnny Barnes was? I don't know. But the band comes along nicely and breaks out into a enjoyable, bluesy solo.
