• This release contains Williams’ magnificent debut album, ‘Here’s Larry Williams’ (1959), which was re-mastered from the original tapes. In addition, we have included a bunch of B-sides and alternate takes from his early and best years on the Specialty Records label as bonus tracks. These recordings feature a virtual who's who of great session men.

• Personnel : Larry Williams, vocals & piano, plus: René Hall, Barney Kessel (guitar), Ralph Hamilton, Ted Brinson (bass), Plas Johnson (tenor saxophone), Alvin "Red" Taylor (baritone saxophone), Gerald Wilson (trumpet), Ernie Freeman (piano), Earl Palmer (drums), The Blossoms (backing vocals), among others. Recorded between 1957 and 1959, at Master Recorders Studios (Hollywood, USA) and J&M Studios (New Orleans, USA).

• Born in New Orleans and raised in California, Larry Williams is from the hard-driving school of R&B, whose fellow classmates included Little Richard and Robert Parker. He was a good-looking, piano-pounding, singer-songwriter - a rough, rowdy Rock & Roller who wrote and recorded some of the best songs of the 50s. A seriously underrated artist, his influence reached far beyond his low chart tally. John Lennon was a big Williams fan and The Beatles covered no less than three of his prime cuts on their earlier albums.

• Total Time: 56:33 - 23 tracks incl. 11 bonus tracks - also includes 16-page booklet with rare photos, vintage artwork and extensive notes.
