Performer Notes
  • An unsung monster from the waning hours of the Stax empire, Roy Lee Johnson and the Villagers' eponymous LP is as funky as anything the label ever released. While its sound is unmistakably Stax -- its elegant yet earthy sensibility couldn't come from anywhere else -- the music expands on the formula via tight, hypnotic grooves and scorching guitar licks. The up-tempo "I Can't Stand This Loneliness" is the unqualified highlight, but there's not a bum note to be found here -- everything works, from the relentless opener "Patch It Up" to the lovely ballad "Something Special." ~ Jason Ankeny
Professional Reviews
Record Collector (magazine) (p.99) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[It was] on this album for Stax that he really hit his stride, with his expressive vocal espousing every emotion over blazing horns, hi-hat and wah wah."
