L.V. Johnson, Chicago-born Soul singer with a sultry, husky voice was the nephew of Elmore James and worked as a staff guitarist at Stax, playing on sessions for the Bar-Kays, Johnnie Taylor, and the Soul Children.
He also released a couple 45s for Volt (“Don’t Cha Mess With My Money, My Honey Or My Woman“). Later he released various singles as an artist in the late 70s and 80s for labels like ICA, Phono and Sunnyview. Phono also issued his first LP in 1981 (“We Belong Together“).
After one more obscure platter (1986’s “All Night Party“).
Johnson was signed to Ichiban where he recorded until his 1994 death.
Though enjoying a few underground hits (“It’s So Cold & Mean (On The Drug Scene)“, “Take A Little Time To Know Her”), other singers did better with his songs, like Tyrone Davis (“Are You Serious” ,”True Love Is Hard to Find“) and Bobby ‘Blue” Bland ( “Country Love“) and the Dells (“Give Your Baby a Standing Ovation“).
