Song of the Day: Johnny “Guitar” Watson, “A Real Mother For Ya”

Blues/funk/soul guitarist/singer/songwriter Johnny "Guitar" Watson would be 86 today. His 1977 record "A Real Mother For Ya" was the title track from his album that year, and reached #4 on the R&B chart and #41 on the Hot 100. Here he is in an appearance on Soul Train.

  1. Soul Train is always a fun watch not only for some great guests but those fashions…the 70s is never what I would call fashion forward. I enjoyed the song even though I never heard of it. I want to look him up because it seems he has passed away from what you wrote.
