Honest John (5). Going Underground - Lost Progressive And Hard Rock Classics Vol. 2 ‎(CDr). Honest John (5). Sailor ‎(LP, Album). Lion Productions, ShroomAngel Records.

Honest John’s Sailor is a living, breathing tribute to Ottis Coleman, who should have long ago been celebrated as a true Texas guitar great. Features Coleman’s stellar guitar and engineered by future Mojave Audio honcho and key figure in 1970’s rock in Houston, Dusty Wakeman. Coleman and Wakeman both later joined Houston blues rockers Buzz Bone, which featured Dan Mitchell and Tom Moore post-Moving Sidewalks. But it has always been the Honest John sessions that they longed to have released. We at Lion Productions are proud to present the album Honest John wanted to release, at long long last.

just have to let you know about the honest john "sailor" lp...500 pressed, first time on vinyl, lion productions/shroom angel issue...the story inside the gatefold is that a fellow in texas was visited by the producer of this album, this fellow had an attic full of rare 70's artifacts, many reels and photos of different obscure 70's texas acts...he had the original masters of the honest john sessions but wouldn't hand them over unless the producer agreed to put out 3 other lps by groups of this fellows choosing, producer declined...end of story? no...producer runs into honest john guitarist ottis coleman who has in his possession a safety copy of the final mix, hands it over, and as they say the rest is history...ottis coleman (guitar), t.j. sanders (bass and vocals), t.j. stands for tommy jo, texas eh, chuck lewis (drums)...born from the ashes of local galveston and houston groups "1900 storm", "texas blend" and "buzz bone"...they have history with dusty wakeman (engineer of these recordings and bassist) and ex drummer and keyboardist from "moving sidewalks"...this centres around "baron" studios, dusty worked there and honest john evidently spent a lot of time in there whenever dusty could get them in...honest john did release a 7" 45 on the baron label...soooooooo...why has this music gotten totally under my skin?1) not your typical flashy guitar 70's hard rock...obviously they spent a lot of time tweaking the guitar parts...tons of atmospheric and tonally exciting fills and multi tracks...ottis has some prime moves, starts a lot of solos either with sustained/feedback laden notes or his signature move of reverse dive bombing the first lick, lowering the note with the whammy bar and only letting it sound as the bar is released to reveal a note rising from lower to higher, usually cut off to create great drama...his triplets and how he sits rhythmically within the song tempos is amazing, everything sounds less improvised and more composed...his playing seems to rest on tone and dynamics.2) t.j. sanders voice and bass playing...to me he's the soul of the music...his bass playing is extremely kinetic but his vocals are the main attraction...i can rarely understand his diction of lyrics, but when i do it's awesome (..."stay at home and keep on drinkin") who hasn't sat in their home for days on end drowning their sorrows in the good stuff...gruff tonality but he can soar into metal type banshee wailing when needed.3) the music itself...probably greater than the sum of it's parts...excellent slightly unique song structures and progressions...extremely dynamic, from a whisper to a scream and back again, within the same song or as uptempo numbers are mixed with quieter numbers...as i said you can tell they put some work in at the studio, but still leave lots of room or space in the music, even at it's most frantic...slightly amateurish recording and performing at times, lyrics probably won't keep dylan or lennon up at night but just the right amount of lack of polish that let's the soul of the music shine through...i've checked out samples from cd on youtube and they don't sound near as good as the lp i listen to at home, check out "crazy shoes", makes me get up and move!
