Ray Johnson - Soul City / Kinda Groovy

Ray Johnson is the older brother of saxman Plas Johnson. Theirs was a Creole family that included other fine musical talents, like singing sister Gwen Johnson and cousins Renald Richard (who co-wrote "I Got A Woman" with Ray Charles), Don Vappie and Michael White. Their father, Plas Johnson Sr., was a musician who played multiple instruments, saxophone, guitar and banjo. This rare 1963 single on the Infinity label is a soul gem.
