One of the last remaining links to the heyday of R&B and funk, "Mr. Rhythm" is a pure living legend of black music. Andre Williams not only produced and wrote songs for folks like Ike Turner, Parliament/Funkadelic, Edwin Starr, and Stevie Wonder, and worked at seminal labels like Chess, Motown, and Fortune Records, but he also wrote and sang an enormous number of his own songs, cult classics like "Jail Bait", "Greasy Chicken", and "Bacon Fat". This release focuses on the earliest -- and dirtiest -- years of his five-decade-long career, compiling all of his singles from 1956-1957 for the legendary Fortune Records label.
