What the Hell Is This? album for sale Product Description

What the Hell Is This? album for sale by Johnny "Guitar" Watson was released Jan 17, 2006 on the Shout! Factory label. Given the gleefully irreverent album cover (featuring the bewildered artist in seriously bold threads, sitting on a tricycle flanked by three female gas station attendants), listeners know that they're in for a fun time before WHAT THE HELL IS THIS? even begins What the Hell Is This? songs. This 1979 record finds Johnny "Guitar" Watson in a serious funk mode, a fact made immediately clear by the surging opening title track, on which the Texas-born Watson muses about the YWCA and ponders unemployment over a dense, Parliament-worthy backdrop. While Watson does indulge in some of his signature bluesy, pyrotechnic six-string playing, this is a giddy funk/R&B outing that's steeped in thick keyboard and bass lines, and it stands as an underrated gem of the late '70s. What the Hell Is This? CD music contains a single disc with 9 songs.   ...See Full Description
