Nicknamed the Tan Canary for his ability to sing in a multi-octave range, Johnny Adams was a staple of the New Orleans soul scene until passing in 1998. He possessed the raw talent, the stage presence, and the golden, or rather tan voice to become the next potential Otis Redding or Wilson Picket until his minor hits ran dry in the early seventies. It's a genuine shame too because Adams always seemed just one megahit shy from reaching achievable stardom.
"Georgia Morning Dew" is the opening track on his debut LP Heart & Soul. It was released in 1969, and then reissued again by Vampisoul in 2004.
