Johnny and the Headhunters are known as a powerful Rock-a-Billy and Blues band. John Tickton, an excellent guitarist and vocalist has lead the band since the early days. Bass player Brian Mcgregor and drummer Brooks Tegler complete the trio's first rate sound . The Headhunters have performed for 20 years in and around the Nation’s Capital, along the whole East Coast as well as popular in the club scene for many years in Manhattan especially at "Manny's Car Wash," a favorite Upper East Side blues hot spot. The band has played many shows with Pete Ragusa, drummer and Grammy nominated producer for the internationally acclaimed Nighthawks. Pete has played on several of Johnny’s personal albums and also produced the Headhunters release titled Watch Yourself. Truckin’ the Blues, the band’s latest release, was produced by Billy Hancock and features Bruce Ewan on harmonica and Joe Stanley and Chris Watling on saxophones. I bought the self titled LP at the Record and Tape Exchange in College Park, MD and the Cassette I bought at one of Johnny's shows at Armadillo's in Annapolis, MD back in 1994 I believe. Just another cool artist from the DC area that plays straight up Roots Rock, Rock-n-Roll.
Both albums were recorded to one CD and then ripped to my hard drive.

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
