A free General Johnson & the Chairmen of the Board download

I brought up the Chairmen of the Board a couple of months back – and General Johnson, their leader – who put out some great soul records in the early 1970s.

Well, General Norman Johnson never stopped singing. In the Carolinas, his type of upbeat R&B is called “beach music” or “shag music,” and it’s crazy popular.

So that’s where Mr. Johnson has focused his attention for the past 30 years, co-founding Surfside Records and gigging along the Atlantic coast with his Chairmen to this day.

In October, Johnson released a Christmas CD. To hear “Please Come Home for Christmas” on my Vox audio stash, click here.
