Judy and Johnny – First Time All Over Again

Well, their threads are awesome.
And there’s something special about their music, I can’t put my finger on it.

Johnny Carroll made some celebrated rockabilly recordings when he was younger.
And I read that Judy Lindsey used to be a model. I’m glad they got together.

  • “Lady” is such a great song. How am I able to download this? Thanks.

  • this is great – anyone have more info on the record?

  • Wow, this is cool.

    B***: Totally different sound, but check out Johnny Carroll’s “Bandstand Doll” 45 sometime. Atmospheric rock ‘n’ roll classic from ’59.

  • Kinda an obvious point, sure, but the ringing, resonant tone of the guitar-plucking on “Lady” lends things a psych flair, an almost acid folk vibe not at all hinted at by the cover. You could easily throw the jawn on a mix with other trippy, folkers and it’d fit just fine. Quite a departure from a rockabilly cat, yet if you listen you can still feel the connections. An interesting collision, for sure, kinda like they were going for Lee & Nancy vibes er sumthin… maybe Mimi & Richard Farina?

    And then a countrified Abba cover? Ill stuff, natch…

    Hah, after chatting with Rich Haupt about this record, who used to know Johnny, he told me “Lady” is a Little River Band cover… Still a killer, though…

  • My wife and I had the privilege to know and run around with both of them. So you know, Johnny had been the manager of the Cellar in downtown Fort Worth. Judy was working a shoot across the street. This is how they met. Judy was also one of the “Dodge Girls” who did tv promotions for Dodge. Judy presented me with a fiddle from my wife on my 34th birthday. I learned to play somewhat and did so with them several times. I dearly miss them both. Another “just so you know” was the fact that Johnny gave Judy a long-stem red rose every night they performed.
