1 - WILLIAMS, ANDRE - A FORTUNE OF HITS - (CD) 
NIGHT TRAIN INT


The first time the entire body of Andre Williams' Fortune recordings are brought together! This double-CD set represents square one for Andre and the trajectory on which he carved a "bad boy" rock'n'roll sensibility out of rhythm & blues. In the same way his friend Ike Turner created a modern, post-blues persona from his Mississippi to Memphis arc, Andre did so with the doo-wop genre in Detroit - a cousin of Memphis for its own unique mix of country and blues. This set contains the record that put Andre on the map, 'Bacon Fat', which was a legendary contribution to an era that mapped the land of a thousand dances, and with tracks like 'Jail Bait' also contains the stirrings of his envelope pushing sexuality. In the end 'A Fortune Of Hits' encapsulates the beginnings of Andre's legendary post-R&B and "black rock'n'roll". The tracklist includes 'Bacon Fat', 'Jail Bait', 'Going Down To Tia Juana', 'The Greasy Chicken', 'Pass The Biscuits Please', 'Doctor Baby', 'Weekend Man', 'Mean Jean', 'Put A Chain On It', and 26 more cuts!

11 - WILLIAMS, ANDRE - LIFE - (CD) 
ALIVE


Andre Williams began a very prolific and creative phase of his life when he finally got off booze and drugs. His intake of various substances was excessive, unrelenting, and dated back to at least the 1960s, when he was working extensively with Ike Turner. Reflecting on his very first drug-and-alcohol-free studio session in 2009, Andre says, "It was traumatic. It was like someone shot me out in space and I woke up on Pluto!"Andre Williams new album "Life" was recorded this past winter in Detroit, the city where his musical career first began in the 1950s. Andres new songs are his latest experiments and explorations outside of the garage-soul bag that hes often associated with. Produced by Matthew Smith, the albums sonic palette recalls the work of Norman Whitfields Motown productions, 70s Rolling Stones, Can, Bill Withers, Serge Gainsbourg, as well as Andres own doo-wop and funk history."Life" finds Andre in a pretty upbeat mood, whether hes singing about people being rude and impatient ("Butn"), or laying down a political commentary ("Blame it on Obama"), reciting a childrens bedtime story ("Ty the Fly"), singing a simple love song ("Stuck in the Middle", "Its Only You That I Love"), or conjuring a nocturnal fetish-sex-groove ("Heels"). The album also includes his own definitive rocking version of the standard he wrote and produced for the Five Du-Tones in 1963, "Shake a Tail Feather". Its a reminder that Andre Williams is one of the original guys who invented rock n roll.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Stuck In The Middle 02. But'n 03. Dont Kick My Dog 04. Blame It On Obama 05. Heels 06. Beep Beep Beep 07. Its Only You That I Love 08. Money Aint Got No Loyalty 09. Shake A Tail Feather 10. Ty The Fly
