This is a 1975 interview for Little Bit, a high-school magazine in Mpls-St.Paul. 

It includes the actual recorded interview between the authors and MJ! 

The article itself has his history, from childhood to living in Maine and being a waiter to studying guitar in Spain.


The audio is a large file - might take a while to load or download. Let me know if you have problems - I could add it to YouTube if need be.

  Feeling so thankful for Michael's music...
Posted by: retnavycpo - 03-10-2019, 10:43 PM - Forum: MJ Forum - No Replies

I wanted to post some thoughts I had this morning, about what Michael's music means to me.  Although I listen to many types of music, it is Michael Johnson's music that I feel a personal connection to.  His voice and style of singing is different; more relevant to me.  The lyrics of his songs seem to be about my life.  I've experienced the pain of several failed marriages and other relationships; including family problems.  Michael's music has helped me through all of that, and continue to.

When I met Michael at the Chattanooga River Fest in 1999, it was like meeting a old friend.  He made you feel at ease.  Completely sincere.  Michael was real.  

Not a week passes that I don't listen to his music, which call up memories (both good and bad).  

Thank you Cindy, for this forum.  It helps me put in words how much Michael's songs mean to me, and it is so nice to read that so many others feel the same.  Peter

Redid the single covers on https://mjblue.com/mjsingles.html

They're bright and beautiful!

And as all the images on this website (with the exception of the ones I haven't gotten around to redoing), you can right click on an image, open it in a new window or tab and see a larger version.

Hello all,

I received a few donations after the post on Facebook and the newsletter over the weekend and now I'm good. No more needed for a while. Thanks to everyone for your support, whether monetary or emails. All were so special to receive.

If anyone wants to receive a MJ postcard, just send me a private message through this message board or an email (mjsite1 @ mjblue.com) with your address. If you ever received a thank you card from me, it's the same card.

Many thanks to the webmaster of jonimitchell.com for the advice of converting this to a fan site. He's been nothing but inspirational for the last 1-1/2 years. I'm trying to do things right so no more demands are made concerning this site and so it'll stay up for a long time!

Michael Johnson, Mark Henley & Mary MacGregor
Motherlode 1976
Written by Richard Pinney

A demo tape made by the them with one MJ solo.

From: https://www.mjblue.com/bletters.html
Sanskrit has bought the first album from Atco and will be re-releasing it March 1, and in the meantime Johnson is working on new material for a third album. During the breather before returning to the concert trail in March, he was working with entertainer Mark Henley, his next door neighbor, and singer Mary MacGregor, who also are charges of Projects IV, on a three-person act. They wanted to explore their group potential. But earlier this month after playing an opening date at Charlotte's Web in Rockford, Ill., they decided the trio wasn't clicking and will continue their individual careers.
