Little Willie John: The Complete R&B Hit Singles (LP, Colored Vinyl, Ltd.)

(Real Gone Music) 17 tracks 1955-1961. Limited Yellow 'Fever' Vinyl Edition. Includes insert with photos and liner notes by Bill Dahl.

Diminutive in size but gigantic in stature, Little Willie John was a genuine architect of soul. Along with Clyde McPhatter, Ray Charles, and Sam Cooke, the visionary singer stood at the forefront of fusing gospel intensity to rhythm and blues tradition. And had he not died inside a Walla Walla prison at the age of 30, his name would likely be etched in the same soul Pantheon as his peers. Despite his abbreviated career, Willie cut a string of seminal sides for Cincinnati-based King Records from 1955 to 1961 that rank among the finest R&B waxed by any singer for any label of the period. It didn't matter whether the song was an after-hours blues ballad or an uptempo footstomper: Willie's agile, melismatic voice made the number soar. As Motown legend Lamont Dozier says in Bill Dahl's notes to this collection, 'Willie John was just an extraordinary talent. He knew how to touch you with a song, and he knew how to raise the hairs on the back of your neck.' Now, from Real Gone Music comes the definitive vinyl anthology for this overlooked soul superstar: 17 tracks that include every R&B chart hit! That means such landmark tunes as 'Fever,' 'All Around the World,' 'Need Your Love So Bad,' 'Home at Last,' and 'Leave My Kitten Alone,' all documented by liner note writer Bill Dahl on the accompanying insert. Pressed on yellow "fever" vinyl...an essential addition to any soul library!

Little Willie John

Talk To Me, Talk To Me

Little Willie John is the story here: his devastatingly soulful performance ran the gamut from gentle pleading to outright insistence. This became a big hit (#20 pop and #5 R&B) and later became one of the highlights of Willie’s stage show. The composer, Joe Seneca, is a story in his own right, though.

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, (where he went to the same high school as sprinter Jesse Owens, writer Langston Hughes, and bandleader Noble Sissle) he began performing as Joe McGhee with a song and dance trio originally called the Jungle Bugs and then the Three Riffs. As well as writing Talk To Me, he wrote Break It To Me Gently (a hit for Brenda Lee and Juice Newton). In 1981, Seneca made his Broadway debut in 'The Little Foxes' with Elizabeth Taylor, and starred in feature films like 'The Taking Of Pelham 1, 2, 3' and 'Crossroads', as well as on television programs like 'The Cosby Show'.

He died in 1996 of an asthma attack. Seneca profited in a major way four times from this composition: once when Willie John recorded it and again when Sunny and the Sunglows recorded it in 1963. Freddy Fender made it into a country hit in 1978, and Mickey Gilley took it to the top of the country charts in 1983.
