Lloyd Price: His Original Recordings (1958) re Vinyl-LP

Lloyd became recording star while still a teenager when he sang his famous original composition

"Lawdy Miss Clawdy for Specialty Records. Then he recorded in quick succession the other hits as well as the heretofore unreleased sides you hear in this album.

Lloyd's success was interrupted by service in Japan as a member of the U.S. Army; and, like another famous recording star (Elvis Presley -who, by the way, also recorded “Lawdy Miss Clawdy") Lloyd was too busy with army duties to do much recording.


Upon being released from the Army, Lloyd and two friends ernbarlted in the record business on their own. His first hit as an independent record producer was “Just Because"; and, more recently."Stagger Lee." Lloyd soon realized that it was pretty tough being both a singer and a record company executive, so he and his partners agreed to turn over their masters, along with Lloyd as an artist. to a well-known company based in New York City, The new association proved very profitable tor alt concerned, as Lloyd is now rising to even greater heights than before bis army stint.


However while Lloyd is now high on all the hit charts with other songs, he probably remembers "Lawdy Miss Clawdy” best; not only because it first put him on the Hit Parades, but -more important -also because he and this song were almost turned down! This is how it happened.


When the executives of Specialty Records were holding auditions in New Orleans. Louisiana, s few years ago, a young man named Lloyd Price came straggling in and requested to be heard just as the auditions were ending. The Specialty recording men weren't paying much attention to this young man, as they were anxious to catch their plane to return to Hollywood. Detecting their lack of interest, Lloyd Price's heart sank. so that as he was singing "Lawdy Miss Clawdy” his voice practically cried instead of sang the rest of the song. This sound of sincerity made the President of Specialty Records listen more intently, and he then postponed his return trip long enough to record the same “Lawdy Miss Clawdy" that you hear in this album.


The record was an immediate smash hit, and Lloyd's struggles were over. He was no longer faced with the hardship of being forced to do odd jobs to help support ten brothers and sisters. His parents, deeply religious and at first opposed to Lloyd's nightclub appearances, changed their viewpoint when they saw how truly happy their son was with his new success and popularity brought him by “Lawdy Miss Clawdy” Now that bis parents approved oi' his devoting his lite to his music Lloyd's happiness was complete.

The rest of the story is well known. Lloyd continued writing and recording hits, and traveled all over the world to reach the fans who eagerly awaited this dynamo of song. Though he undoubtedly has s long and successful career ahead of him, you can be certain that the songs in this album- his first songs -will always be closest to bis heart.
