ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"SAY YES AGAIN" is a variety of songs always leaning toward love and touching the emotions as most Red Johnson songs do. The title track "Say Yes Again" is wanting to bring back a lost love to what it used to be in an interesting way. Then "Just so You Know" let's a lover know they will always be welcomed back however long it takes. and "A License To Steal puts someone out on the town looking for what is with held at home. and "Hank Was Singing Wedding Bells is a recap of how our love came to be when Hank Williams was singing on the juke box in the late 40's. and "It Feels So Good Everytime" pits someone against their better judgement but have no will to resist. Then "Loving Memories" will have you thinking of loved ones no longer with us but recalling the precious memories they left behind brings a peaceful feeling to enjoy. "If Love Comes Tonight" leaves the question should he take it or not for fear of getting burned again, but he does, and "Laredo" is about the happenings after the gunfight on The Streets Of Laredo. "If I had as long to Love You" as I have to forget it would be a happier life. and "You Couldn't Touch Her" Is the trust between a guy and his Working Woman and how it keeps their love together, "Cold Steel" is a song about a prisioner and his regrets. "A Simple Country Love Song" is a love story how their favorite love song is just a plain jane song with nothing fancy. "BloodBrother" is a song that deals with the plight of the Native Americans in the early days when the white man plundered their lands and how it spills over even into today. And "The Pillow" finally gets there from the song "Send Me The Pillow you Dream On" and things are back together again. You will enjoy this album thanks for stopping Red Johnson

Hello Mr. Johnson...

I just picked up your new CD from Terry Nord and I had to take a minute and thank you so much for including the kids on your CD. They had a wonderful time singing and now think they are all famous because they are on your CD. I just have to let you know what a special thing that was for you to do for my kids. 13 of our 14 kids joined our family through the blessing of adoption (out of the US Foster Care System) so they had chaotic, abusive and neglectful beginnings. It's a special treat when they experience joy and feel proud of themselves....this is the case with the kids having the opportunity to sing on your CD. Ruby is especially thrilled about the CD...she hopes to continue singing and is already talking to Terry about making a CD (after she gets a little older and gets a job...).

Thanks again for the once in a lifetime opportunity and for the CDs (Terry gave us 4 to share with grandparents). I will pass your web-site along to everyone I know so they can enjoy your music.

-Teresa Julkowski, Mora, MN

Note from Red: The Julkowski family are the voices on,"I'm Glad Christmas Comes Every Year". They did a GREAT job and made the difference.

Tom Caine Reviews Veteran's Day and Red Johnson


TOM CAINE
11/13/04

[Ed: I received a wonderful three-song CD from RED JOHNSON that I've just got to talk about.]

RED JOHNSON is a rare and gifted songwriter. He's also a wonderful entertainer, but I want to talk about his songwriting here.

About three years ago I found RED's song "Veteran's Day" on his website. The first few times I listened to it I got goose bumps - the song that does that to me is rare indeed! I learned it and Candi and I started closing one of our shows with it. I remember how pleased RED was when I told him about all the standing ovations his song got. I still do this song around Veteran's Day and some other national holidays. In fact, I just did it last Wednesday at our Quiet Village II jam session.

The CD RED just sent me had three songs on it: "Veteran's Day," "United We Stand" and "Circles On The Wall."

I've just got to tell you that "Circles On The Wall" is another goosebump raiser! It is certainly at least as moving as "Veteran's Day!" Do yourselves a huge favor and do whatever it takes to get a tape or CD from RED with these songs on it.

In the unlikely event that there is still somebody in the Valley who doesn't know RED, or at least know of him - I'm going to type a bio I received with his CD. This way, you can all meet him.

Also, if there are any Activities Directors or other talent buyers browsing here - if you haven't yet booked RED JOHNSON's show, do it now while you're thinking about it. You can reach him through his web site.

The bio on RED follows. -- Tom

REVIEW BY BOB EVERHART
FOUNDER OF NATIONAL TRADITIONAL COUNTRY MUSIC ASSN. http://www.ntcma.net/
RED JOHNSON

I've been a fan of Red Johnson's ever since I first heard "There's A Grand Ole Opry Show Playing Somewhere" he made a hit for Capitol Records. This guy is a natural country singer. He's a natural country guitar picker. He's a natural country songwriter. I say this because Red Johnson knows how to write a 'story' in a song, and his lead track on this CD is incredibly good. "The Old Man At A Table" is one of those 'story' songs that will bring a tear to your eye, and at the same time give the listener one of the best 'tips' of living a full life, anyone is likely to ever hear. What's also neat about Red Johnson is his ability to get a good 'attention getter' cover on his CD's. This particular one has an old man at a table, and it just happens to be Red Johnson. I can't believe how I was so simply moved by the way this wonderful old-timey traditional country CD was put together. Red's voice stands out in the mix, just as it used to be in 'real' country music. Not devoured and hidden in loud outrageous noisy instrumental music makers. On the contrary, this Red Johnson CD is mixed just right all the way through. That's so important today, because Red is recording for an older buying market, and he knows exactly what he's doing in making this work for him. I'm not sure where he cut this, but the studio work is fine, so are the musicians though they are mostly better known playing in the Rio Grande Valley and around Minnesota than they are in the recording studio. On lead guitar is Chuck Peterson and Kenny Nelson. On harmonica is Don Grubb. On steel-guitar (and quite well done) is Kermit Clarin. On Acoustic guitar, bass, drums, strings, piano, and lead vocals is Red Johnson. Judy Fasse helped him out on a couple songs with some vocal harmony. Red has won some accolades at our festival in LeMars, Iowa, and this CD is definitely going to the Rural Roots Music Commission for "Traditional Country CD of the Year" award. Good luck Red I hope you get it, you are very deserving. Red makes his home (in the summer time) in Minnesota, and that makes Minnesota a very lucky state. We will hope to be seeing him at the LeMars Festival in 2012, but he is also very popular on the Minnesota State Fair. Not my cup of tea to get too involved in political issues, but Red's "Pardon Me For Looking In" hits the nerve just right. This could go 'viral' as they say on the Internet. All and all this is one of Red Johnson's best 'new' projects. Highly recommended to anyone who really likes their country......"Country." Visit Red at his website www.redjohnson.net
