Johnny Copeland – Live in NYC

The late, great Johnny Copeland live at the Lone Star Cafe in NYC in 1991. This week is Crystal Corner Week. I’m going to feature artists and bands I’ve seen at the intimate Crystal Corner Bar in Madison WI. For big acts, they push the 3 pool tables together and the stage goes on top! Johnny Copeland was a Texas Style Bluesman and father of Shemekia Copeland. His 1987 album “Showdown!” recorded with Albert Collins and Robert Cray won the Grammy Award for Best Blues Album. I saw Johnny Copeland at the Crystal a few years before he died and will never forget it! I can still hear his bass player yelling “Johnny Clyde Copeland!!” as Johnny walked off the stage at the end of the show!
