Beverly Watkins is another unheralded guitar heroine who late in life is finally getting some attention. Her first noticeable gig was with Piano Red aka Dr. Feelgood and the Interns. She was the third guitar in that band. It’s unclear as to who exactly was taking each different solo as the other two guitarists Curtis Smith and Roy Lee Johnson (composer of Mr. Moonlight) had similar tones. But if you want to hear early versions of a guitar army you might want to hunt these recordings down. She was recently “rediscovered” and has taken up where she left off, playing a mix of rock-n-roll, R&B, soul, gospel and blues.
