17 year old soulstar!!!
L. Gischler | Amsterdam. The Netherlands | 12/30/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"James Brown is a great fan of Litttle Willie John and he used to be his friend until he died at age 30 in 1968. When Little Willie John became famous James Brown was his opening act.
He is not very well known nowadays but you only have to listen to his voice to realize that he is of the same level as Sam Cooke,Jackie Wilson and Otis Redding.
This CD has a good sound quality and contains his early hits, which are more 'rough' than his later work. For me this is pure soul! It is unbelievable that he is just 17 to 19 years old at these recordings."
WHILE OTHER'S WERE JUST SELLING 78's & 45's, LITTLE WILLIE J

"This collection is actually drawn from Two (2) of Little Willie John's albums, and includes several Billboard Charted Hits such as: "All Around The World" a #5 Hit!, "Need Your Love So Bad" another #5 Hit, it's B-Side "Home At Last" which recieved a lot of Air-Play, and The All-Time #1 Classic Hit: "Fever" (His Biggest Hit from this period), It's B-Side "Letter From My Darling" which recieved a lot of Air-Play. This Compact Disc includes several Album Favorites, as well as several Non-Charted Hits. The sound quality is excellent! For those who still have the 'Original' Vinyl 78's, 45's and Albums now is a good time to put them out of their misery...As I said earlier Little Willie John was selling Albums, and those who do own the 'Original' Vinyl pressings....It's a pretty good chance they have been played a lot, and your chances of finding Mint copies are VERY SLIM!!! So make yourself happy and go out and buy this Compact Disc (As well as Second Installment) right away!"
