Hi Sue (suzie Q), Dream and Mixey!
 
I am aware of Willie John's music. I'm fillmiliar with his big r&b hit "Fever". My parents collected a lot of his single, Darn I wish I had them. Thank so much Sue for the link - I know I will learn a lot.
 
THANKS again Sue,

Hi Kitten ...
 
There will be more fun biographical stuff on the My Space page soon. You should see the photos of Willie too, that nobody's ever seen! On the Internet and in books you see the same photos of him over and over.

Have you hear the Beatles' version of "Leave My Kitten Alone"? Most folks my age and older have, but I know you said you were in your 30s ...

I am proud to say I heard Little Willie John's version first but I have heard the Beatles version as well.   Have to admit John is the king but the fab four pull it off really well.   There is a new band out of Detroit(well they been around for a decade now) called the Detroit Cobras that specialize in covering obscure R&B and rock tunes. Recently they did a version of "Leave My Kitten Alone" and its not bad.

Yep the Beatles recorded that in August '64. Good for you, that you heard Willie's version first.
 
For me, Willie John's "Leave My Kitten Alone" isn't an obscure song, but it's cool that the Cobras covered it.

Should add to this that it would be a dream if I could find the original 1956 LP of Fever, with the nurse on the cover, but damn its expensive and really hard to find.

I've seen that on eBay, Mickey...pricey but not totally out of reach.
 
Was that cover for the 78 or the 45, I forget?

Yeah, I've seen the nurse cover on "Fever" offered on eBay, I couldn't remember if it was for the single, album or what.

P.S. "Fever" was only ever on King.
 
Willie recorded for another record company while he was out on bail, but there's no legit release on that -- yet. It's coming.

Hi Sue,
I LOVE It! Opening up with my favorite LWJ tune "Cottage For Sale", that song tugs at my heart. The site gives fans new information. Love what Bobby Schiffman said. So cool!
Can't wait for the book to come out.
 
Please give our love to Darlynn, Kevin, & Keith.
