Jet magazine called him "one of rhythm & blues' most influential musicians." With a career spanning 40 years, Johnny "Guitar" Watson had success in the blues, R&B and jazz fields. But his commercial and artistic apex came with his late '70s and early '80s funk recordings.
Shout! Factory is proud to continue its restoration of his catalog with more deluxe editions of his classic funk albums. 1978's Giant continued the blues master's adventures in the land of funk, with a healthy dollop of Chic-styled disco added to the mix. A remake of his classic '50s single "Gangster Of Love" yielded a Top 40 R&B hit, and pushed the album into the R&B Top 20.
