Forgotten Singer, Larry Williams – Gary
Please see revised post: Larry Williams
Back in the late Fifties, Art Rupe at Specialty Records signed Lloyd Price’s chauffeur, Larry Williams, just as Little Richard was leaving to search for the Gospel AGAIN. Larry Williams had a very chequered past that would follow him all his life, and may have caused his death in 1980. He wrote songs that are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as being very influential. As was the practice in the late fifties his career at the top only last a couple of years. Russ you will enjoy the Horns.
PS: His songs have been recorded by all the biggies including The Beatles.
