During the first lockdown last year, a friend and I were starting to have private Zoom sessions where we played our top five of whatever musical topic. In October 2020, we decided to take those public under the moniker of The Laid Back Fracas. Now, we have established biweekly sessions where either two record collectors challenge each other on a specific topic (e.g. Studio One Rock Steady, Chicago Soul, Ethiopian traditional music) or a specific music style is introduced to the audience (The Laid Back Jugglas).
I will hijack the upcoming one for a tribute to Johnny Johnson who recently passed away. As I know that the Jamaican harmony group Johnny & the Attractions has a tiny bit of a following also in the Soul scene, I took the freedom to post this here as well.
