5.0 out of 5 stars You give me fever 31 Oct 2011
By Dangerous Dave TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Little Willie John was an artist who was and is, woefully under appreciated in the UK. If known to the UK record buyer at all it's as the man who sang the original version of "Fever". Indeed, when playing the much more famous Peggy Lee version of the song or one of the many later covers - Presley did one of them - its often introduced as Little Willie John's "Fever".

His main period of success was from the mid `50's to the early `60's, though he continued recording through to 1966 when he was convicted for manslaughter after a knifing incident. He later died from a heart attack in prison in `68. During the 50's very little black R&B got issued in the UK even if such records were making big waves in the US R&B charts and sometimes getting into the US national charts. James Brown was another artist to suffer from lack of promotion over here but his big breakthrough came later with "Papa's got a brand new bag" by which time his singles were getting UK airplay (and the climate was much readier to accept R&B).

This album concentrates on the hits, from his very first single, the Titus Turner written, "All around the World" in 1955, which song was later to become better known when renamed as "Grits ain't Groceries" and recorded by Little Milton, to "Take my love (I want to give it all to you)" in 1961. It's interesting to hear the evolution of "All around the world" from the Little Willie version to Little Milton's cut; the former is a jump blues with attention catching stop time phrases whereas the latter has the sharp horn riffing that you'd associate with mature soul music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 23 Jan 2013
By Leonard C. Samuel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is the definative recording of "Fever" as well as the rest of the selections and they haven't been available for years. LWJ died too soon.
