The second set in Ace's in-depth look at Little Willie Johns influential singles for the King label. The first release was The Early Sessions (CDCHD 846).
The hits here include Talk To Me, Talk To Me, Leave My Kitten Alone, Sleep and Heartbreak (Its Hurtin Me) with 20 other A and B sides from 1958-1960, including the Mod / R&B club monster Im Shakin.
Once again, Bill Dahl, author of Motown: The Golden Years, has written the note based on first-hand interviews, this time with Willies sister Mable John, songwriter Billy Myles, and Motown legend Lamont Dozier.
Dozier spoke of Little Willie John in particularly glowing terms: "The guy was just incredible. His voice, and what he did with a song it was believable, and he knew how to touch you with a song, and knew how to raise the hair on the back of your neck."
This releases shows just why Little Willie John is such a cult figure as he tackles everything from rocking R&B to sensitive blues ballads, even pop standards on the cusp of the soul era.
