Lou Johnson – Unsatisfied – Big Top


Only 1 left in stock

Lou Johnson was born in 1941 in Brooklyn, New York into a musical family, starting singing in gospel choirs in his teens, before studying music at Brooklyn College. He learned keyboards and percussion, forming a gospel group, the Zionettes, who recorded for “Simpson” records. He then formed The Coanjos, with Tresia Cleveland and Ann Gissendammer, recording one record before the two girls left to become The Soul Sisters. In 1962, he signed as a solo singer with “Bigtop” records, where he met the songwriting team of Burt Bacharach and Hal David, who wrote his first single, “If I Never Get to Love You”. Neither that song nor his second record were hits, but his third single, “Reach Out for Me” sold well, but as it rose up the charts, the record company collapsed so limiting the record’s success. Lou went on to record for a variety of labels. Lou sadly died in May 2019. This disc from 1965 has light wear whilst retaining gloss, conservatively graded in VG++ condition, worth checking out the flip too
