Johnny Ferguson

Let’s just say that I’m harried, no time to blog. Just as well, because I know nothing about Johnny Ferguson, and the web is no help. I know this much: he only ever had one hit record.

Johnny Ferguson:

Angela Jones – I wonder if she was related to Delilah Jones. The idea of using a surname is cute but uncommon. There were Jennifer Eccles and Jennifer Juniper and Jennifer Tomkins. So why were they all Jennifer? It tells its own story of course, and creates its own little world, but it eliminates (or reduces, or suppose it’s possible to know someone named “Angela Jones”) the universality of the song. From the spring of 1960.
