    Foothill Stomp is an excellent recording and one that should help to propel Richard Johnston into the forefront of the blues community. His skill as a performer and his dedication to the music is quite notable on this CD and in his live performances.

    Richard Johnston comes from the hill country of Northern Mississippi and usually performs on Beale Street in Memphis as a one-man band. After the death of Junior Kimbrough Richard (a white guy!) filled the gap and continued to play Junior's Juke Joint on Saturdays with Junior's various sons and nephews (The Soul Blues Boys) providing the backing.

    Richard plays all instruments and listening to this you get an idea how his one-man-band sounds when he plays Beale Street on weekends. Foot Hill Stomp is his debut album. Rural blues spun from Mississippi cotton and juke-joint sawdust. You gotta keep it primitive! Out on November 2 on a gr. vinyl LP and 6-fold digifile CD.

    Richard Johnston hits all the right notes with this CD. Playing his cigar box guitar, he takes you back to the juke joints and backwater alleys to relive what was then known as Memphis blues. You'll find yourself playing this CD over and over. Price is steep, but worth it/5(25).

    with Johnston on his superb CD Foot Hill Stomp, which includes expert reads of tunes by Kimbrough, Burnside and Rainey Burnette. Johnston followed that album with ’s equally affecting Official Bootleg No. 1, another helping of Hill Country romps that was capped by a highly personalized read of Kimbrough’s “Meet Me in the City.”.

    Jan 19,  · He won’t be billed as Richard Johnston though, as he’s in a dispute with a German record label who released his debut album Foothill Stomp. Johnston recently moved to Hawaii to reinvent himself, and since last November he’s working under a new persona, Boozer Ramirez.
