Little Willie John: Nineteen Sixty Six (CD)

(1966 'Capitol') (55:52/20) Die letzten Aufnahmen des 1964 wegen Mordes zu lebenslänglicher Haft verurteilten Sängers, der 1966 vergeblich auf die Wiederaufnahme seines Verfahrens hoffte und 1968 im Knast an Lungenentzündung starb. Er wurde 31 Jahre alt. Erstmals veröffentlichtes Album, das aus rechtlich en Gründen damals nicht erscheinen konnte. Zumeist fantastische Soul/Blues-Aufnahmen in der Tradition von Bobby 'Blue' Bland, exzellent produziert von David Axelrod. Wer Unbekanntes von einem der größten Sänger aller Zeiten hören möchte, sollte dieses Album bestellen. Wunderbar

Interpreten-Beschreibung "John, Little Willie"

Little Willie John

Talk To Me, Talk To Me

Little Willie John is the story here: his devastatingly soulful performance ran the gamut from gentle pleading to outright insistence. This became a big hit (#20 pop and #5 R&B) and later became one of the highlights of Willie’s stage show. The composer, Joe Seneca, is a story in his own right, though.

Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, (where he went to the same high school as sprinter Jesse Owens, writer Langston Hughes, and bandleader Noble Sissle) he began performing as Joe McGhee with a song and dance trio originally called the Jungle Bugs and then the Three Riffs. As well as writing Talk To Me, he wrote Break It To Me Gently (a hit for Brenda Lee and Juice Newton). In 1981, Seneca made his Broadway debut in 'The Little Foxes' with Elizabeth Taylor, and starred in feature films like 'The Taking Of Pelham 1, 2, 3' and 'Crossroads', as well as on television programs like 'The Cosby Show'.

He died in 1996 of an asthma attack. Seneca profited in a major way four times from this composition: once when Willie John recorded it and again when Sunny and the Sunglows recorded it in 1963. Freddy Fender made it into a country hit in 1978, and Mickey Gilley took it to the top of the country charts in 1983.
