Ain't Gonna Move b/w Baby Don't Leave by Johnny Guitar Watson - Northern Soul 45 on Jowat Records #118 Johnny Guitar Watson moved to Los Angeles with his mother in the early 1950's. Johnny quickly made an impact in the LA music scene. A few of the major stars that he influenced were, Etta James, Frank Zappa, Jimi Hendrix and there's no doubt in my mind that there were countless others. "Ain't Gonna Move" was released in 1964 and was his only release on the Jowat label, as far as I know. Going back to his roots, the flip side "Baby Don't Leave" decided to sing and record a Blues tune. If you don't know much about Johnny, check out one of my favorite songs by him, it's a Bluesy Soul tune titled "Cuttin' In", and let me know what you think.
