Vanity Session Was the result of a year-long residency ROSS JOHNSON and JEFFREY EVANS held at The Buccaneer club in Memphis, TN. The album was recorded on March 2l, 2008, at Zebra Ranch Studio in North Mississippi by the Iegendary JIM DICKINSON with the help of former Reigning Sound drummer, GREG ROBERSON. Ross Johnson has been a staple ofthe Memphis music scene for more than three decades. He's probably best known for his ranting on ALEX CHILTON’s seminal solo record, Like Flies On Sherbert (Ross is the Baron). Johnson was also the original drummer for THE PANTHER BURNS, although he missed the Behind The Magnolia Curtain sessions due to drunkenness. Now retired from his job as a librarian, Ross currently spends most days drinking, ranting, writing about music and playing drums (typically in that order). Like Don Ayler's trumpet playing, Ross is unrestrained—at a high volume, he’ll tell you everything you wanted to know (and more) about Memphis music. JEFFREY EVANS carne to Memphis in the mid '80s, following the path to Sun Records. A devotee of Charlie Feathers, Evans influenced many with his band THE GIBSON BROS. Alongside the late Jack Taylor, Evans fronted '68 COMEBACK throughout the ‘90s (and produced Tav Falco and The Panther Burns excellent return to form, Panther Phobia, in 2000). He currently fronts Jeffrey Evans and his SOUTHERN ACES. Vanity Session features Ross and Jeff switching off on lead Vocals; at their request, Jim Dickinson showed them how he performed "I've Had It" for Like Flies On Sherbert. Thankfully Evans recorded the song and it appears on the record, Backing Ross and Jett are Greg Roberson (drums), JOHN PAUL KEITH, ADAM WOODWARD and JEREMY SCOTT (bass). Vanity Session is highly recommended for fans of Like Flies on Sherbert, the film Stranded in Canton, The Gibson Bros., and vanity records (because that's what it is).
