Johnny "Hurricane" Jone

Rev. Johnny L. "Hurricane" Jones - One More Time from "Jesus Christ from A to Z" by dusttodigital

If you done lost yo' religion and need somebody to help you get it back do not rely on The Best iPhone Photographer in the World - he will lead you astray. However, he can direct you to some damn fine tunes. Like this one he turned me on to today from Parlortone - the following is from their site:

"More than a half-century ago, a young country preacher from backwoods Alabama came to the big city and made his name leading one of Atlanta’s largest Baptist congregations. In a great Southern metropolis renowned for its preachers, Rev. Johnny L. Jones stood out for his unique delivery that combined solid theological grounding and moody, explosive flights into a high-turbulence zone between song and speech, earning him a reputation as the Fireball Preacher and more famously, The Hurricane. "Jesus Christ from A to Z" (PT-4001) was compiled from more than 50 years of reel-to-reel tapes of live church recordings."more
