Johnny Bristol

Robin Katz, Sounds, 10 August 1974

JOHNNY BRISTOL'S 'Hang On In There Baby' is currently moving up the American charts. It sounds very much like the Isaac Hayes-Barry White school of black middle of the road, which is a shame, because it's not completely representative of what Bristol is capable of doing (or has done), but it's one way to begin.
