Williams Andre- Mr Rhythm Is Movin
[ Hoodoo263394 ]
Price: $12.00
Detroit and Chicago musical legend Andre Williams has been singin’ and livin’ the rhythm & blues since the mid ‘50s when he had his first hit, “Bacon Fat”. With the dirtiest voice around, Williams established himself as the king of the greasiest R&B, and his ability to translate a song into a complete performance still captivates audiences today. Mr. Rhythm, as he was also known, was rapping in his laid-back hipster style long before there was rap – he was the consummate ultra-cool sharp-dressed slick and sleazy soulman. Williams has always been at his best when playing ludicrous rump-shaking grooves about food or foul-mouthed funk, spending much of the his later years writing chart toppers for the likes of Stevie Wonder, Mary Wells, Funkadelic, Parliament and Ike and Tina Turner, to name just a few. This collection gathers a variety of the great R&B recordings and hard to find early sides he made for the Fortune label between 1955 and 1960. Backed by The Don Juans or The Five Dollars, Williams can be heard here ripping through his most famous songs.
