The Lowell Sun
From the B.B. King review
Lowell, MA 1/10/01

All-instrumental opener Johnny A. and his band Ed Spargo (bass) and amazing drummer Craig Macintyre proved one of the finest opening acts we've seen. Johnny A., perhaps best known as the guitarist for Peter Wolf's band, mixed rock, surf, rockabilly and jazz into his 35-minute set, culling material from his excellent Sometime Tuesday Morning disc. He ran through Willie Cobbs' "You Don't Love Me," the originals "Two Wheel Horse" and "Oh Yeah," which is getting radio airplay, but the highlight was a gorgeous reading of Jimmy Webb's "Wichita Lineman." This guy's going places.
