“…magnificent” about covers the whole of “Heaven’s To Betsy” in one word. Like they’ve dusted off the all American rock n roll songbook and given it a spruce up. Good heavens, this is a cracker.” - Maximum Volume
"...all you have to do is sit back and enjoy his celebration of all things that made southern rock such a hallmark sound of the 70's. This is a return to how the greats did it." - Midwest Review

Special guests on the album include Nathan Hershey (Hammond B3, Wurlitzer, and piano), Frank Bauer (sax & backing vocals), and Tom “Papa” Ray (harmonica).
GRIND RELEASED 8/21/2014 Grind reached #8 on the Billboard Blues Charts. Other notable credits, GRIND was produced by Devon Allman, featuring Grammy award winner Yonrico Scott on drums. GRIND was a return to the "POWER TRIO" approach. With the absence of horns, GRIND has a Southern Rock sound that many JJB fans love. GRIND is a fan favorite and many of the tracks can be heard in the JJB live show today.
Brand spank'n blue RELEASED 2011 This CD was the first CD to introduce Jeremiah Johnson in the US. With extensive Sirius/XM radio play, it was the first time people nation wide heard of Jeremiah Johnson. Featuring "The Sliders" horn section, BSB has a big sound. This record has many JJB classics on it, most of which are rarely heard live today.
9th & Russell RELEASED IN 2010 After 10 years in Houston TX, 9th & Russell was the first release by Jeremiah Johnson upon his return to St Louis. 9th & Russell established Johnson as one of the top up and coming musicians in the St Louis area and launched the next 9 years into motion. 9th and Russell didn't receive much radio play beyond the St Louis area, but quickly became a local hit and the band began to sell out all the local venues. It featured Brad Martin (drums) and Jeff Girardier (bass & backing vocals) and the Sliders (horn section comprised of Jim Rosse (trumpet) and Stuart Williams (saxophone). The Sliders are long-time players on the St. Louis blues/R&B scene – working together for over 25 years) THIS IS A FUN CD!
Recorded in Houston TX, when Jeremiah was performing as "Jeremiah Johnson and the Texas Alligators". This is considered one of the "Bluesiest" records Johnson has recorded in his career and features an amazing Texas band. Many of these songs have been re-corded by Johnson on later releases. It's a must have if your a JJ fan.
