I Was Worried Last Night

I don’t think Johnnie Temple gets enough respect, maybe because he jumped back and forth between so many styles and after a few (amazing) post-war recordings and stints in Chicago blues and jazz clubs he left the scene only to reappear a few times during the folk revival of the 1960s. Temple has a wonderful voice and presence that immediately recalls Lonnie Johnson, you can hear his weariness and pain in his voice but it’s never over the top.
