Wax Love presents a reissue of Here's Larry Williams, originally released in 1959. The great New Orleans R&B singer Larry Williams may not have the same name recognition as Fats Domino, Ernie K-Doe, or Roy Brown but his hits, especially "Short Fat Fannie" and "Bony Maronie", are still universally recognizable classics. Signed to Specialty Records in 1957 after meeting Little Richard and his producer while he was recording in New Orleans, Williams struck gold with one of his earliest singles, "Short Fat Fannie", which reached #1 on the R&B chart, and #5 on the pop chart. Here's Larry Williams collects all of Williams' biggest singles on one LP along with some killer deep cuts. If one digs piano-driven R&B shouters, Here's Larry Williams is absolutely essential, a classic from one of New Orleans' greatest.
