Forgotten Music: Little Willie John

Guest Shot: Vintage Trouble’s Ty Taylor On His (New) Favorite (Old) Singer: Belting it out as Vintage Trouble’s lead singer, Ty Taylor sings, shakes, and shines like the great soul shouters of the ’60s. He thought he’d done his homework. Until he heard Little Willie John.

That's a great site. Their "Elvis Costello Song of the Week" feature is very interesting.

I love that site. I get all my Forgotten Music links there.

I first got turned on to Little Willie John by a Robbie Robertson song ("Somewhere Down the Crazy River"), in which this appears:

"Take a picture of this
The fields are empty, abandoned '59 Chevy
Laying in the back seat listening to Little Willie John
Yeah, that's when time stood still"

You have any idea how hard it was, in 1986(?) for find *anything* by Little Willie John? Finally found a couple of records at a used record store (mostly jazz) in Chicago.

In my long-ago youth, he was played on the radio.
