    This generous (29 tracks on a single disc) set collects the earliest recordings of Johnny "Guitar" Watson, including the astounding "Space Guitar" instrumental he tracked for Federal Records in 1954, which featured electric guitar sounds that wouldn't show up again in pop culture for another decade or so; his fine cover of Earl King's swamp ballad "Those Lonely Lonely Nights," which was a hit when it was released by the Bihari Brothers' RPM label in 1955; and his signature song, "Gangster of Love," which first appeared from Keen Records in 1957. ~ Steve Leggett
