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.

Lloyd Price

Not only did Lloyd Price break down musical and social barriers with his pioneering 1952 smash Lawdy Miss Clawdy, one of the first R&B blockbusters to attract serious interest from white teens hellbent on escaping the drudgery of the era's whitebread pop hit parade, the New Orleans native with the wide, sunny smile devised a savvy pop-accessible approach as the 1950s progressed that earned him widespread crossover stardom late in the decade and right into the '60s.

Along with Sam Cooke, Jackie Wilson, Clyde McPhatter, Brook Benton, and a few more, Lloyd was in the first vanguard of stand-up R&B singers to crash the pop charts on a consistent basis during the late '50s. So universal was his appeal that on June 28, 1959, he guested on Ed Sullivan's popular Sunday evening CBS-TV variety extravaganza—hardly an R&B hotbed—to sing his smash Personality for a national viewing audience. And long before Cooke formed his SAR label, Price launched his own KRC imprint in 1957—a revolutionary move at the time for a black performer still well shy of his 25th birthday.

Born into a huge Crescent City family on March 5, 1933, Price grew up in a devout Baptist household, though the church played no role at all in his musical development. When I was a kid, my little brother Leo and I used to beat on beer boxes and cans and stuff, makin' rhythm," says Lloyd. "And we did that for quite a while." A talented drummer and singer, Leo would follow in Lloyd's footsteps, co-penning Little Richard's 1957 hit Send Me Some Lovin' and cutting a few singles of his own, notably a pair of strong mid-'50s rockers,What's It All About and I Cried, for New Orleans-based Meladee as Little Leo.

Their mother operated a small food store on the outskirts of the Big Easy boasting a jukebox stocked with the latest jump blues 78s by Amos Milburn, Roy Milton, and Joe and Jimmy Liggins. Little Lloyd would sing and dance along with the records as the patrons tipped him nickels in appreciation. "Louis Jordan was my favorite back in those days. We'd listen to the radio because of that. He was very popular," says Price. "I was a kid when I heard Joe Turner sing 'Chains Of Love.' I thought that was some song. I really liked him as an artist."  Lloyd began to learn his way around a piano, WBOK deejay James 'Okey Dokey' Smith serving as the catalyst for the teenager's music career.

"He had one commercial, and it was Maxwell House Coffee. And he would say, 'Lawdy Miss Clawdy, eat Mother's Homemade Pies and drink Maxwell House Coffee!' And then he'd play a record," says Price. "One day, he came out to Kenner. That's about seven miles outside of New Orleans. It's now where the New Orleans airport is. We lived out that way. My mother had what you call a sandwich shop. She sold gumbo and fish sandwiches and chicken sandwiches. So he was very popular. He came by to get a sandwich, and I got him to listen to me do 'Lawdy Miss Clawdy,' the way I had put it together. I knew nothing about writing no songs, or anything like that. I just banged it out on the piano. I knew how to play what they call eight-bar blues chords. And I did that, and he said, 'Oh, I like that!'

"And from that, he decided that we should go on the road, because we had this little band. There was about five of us. He said, 'Listen, I play baseball every Sunday. You guys should come out and play for me. Play one or two songs before we start playing, and I'll pay you guys.' So he did that. So we did that with him for a few months, and one day Dave Bartholomew, who at that time was like the boss of New Orleans--he was working at Cosimo's--he came out. And he stopped for a sandwich. And this time I was on the piano, and I was singing 'Lawdy Miss Clawdy' again. And he said, 'Hey, I like that!' To hear that from Dave was like thunder coming from the sky, and I had been hit by a thunderbolt!

"He said he liked it, and he asked me to do it a couple of times. I did, and he said, 'You know what? I've got a guy coming in from California who might record you, you know? I want him to hear that.' So Dave Bartholomew saying that was like Santa Claus bringing me the biggest gift I ever wanted. Didn't believe him, but he said it, and I don't know why I thought he might have had a reason to be joking. He didn't know me, I didn't know him. He was Mr. Dave to me.
