Johnny Adams Sings Doc Pomus: The Real Me
Jerome "Doc" Pomus was perhaps the most beloved blues writer of his era. Famous for Ray Charles's "Lonely Avenue" and Elvis Presley's "Viva Las Vegas!" Pomus's catalog of hits is among the deepest in modern music. Yet no one interprets the Pomus oeuvre with more polish and sensitivity than Johnny Adams. "The Tan Canary" is considered, along with Aaron Neville, the most versatile vocalist to come out of New Orleans. This set is stunning.
