Black Vinyl LP

Mostly from the songwriting and production team of Porter and Hayes (who brought you hits by many other great artists whose first or last names start with “John” – Mabel John, Johnnie Taylor and so on) comes the first LP by the great Ruby Johnson.

Ruby Johnson has recorded forty-seven songs and here you will find twelve of her very best. Ruby is here to illustrate the in’s and out’s of love and loss, writ large and small. Is love a roller coaster ride? You bet! Is it worth it? The jury’s out. Love can ‘run your hurt away’ or reveal ‘your weak spot’. It can make you exclaim ‘no no no’ or it can make you whisper ‘come to me my darling’. But the fates will agree that in the end, ‘it’s not easy’ and Love will one day get you saying ‘let me apologise’.

Through these twelve songs and her life of charity, faith and kindness, Ruby Johnson has displayed the greatest love – all the while asking that timeless question: how strong is my love?
