2006 release. Vampisoul is proud to release a CD by the genius from Detroit, Andre Williams. Compiling some of his more funky soul tracks from the '60s, originally released by Fortune, Avin, Sport, Wingate, Ric-Tic, Checker and Chess, and featuring previously unreleased songs. Andre recorded over 50 songs for Fortune including: "Bacon Fat," "JailBait," "Pass The Biscuits" and "The Greasy Chicken." Andre began recording under various pseudonyms such as The Five Dollars and The Don Juans. He became known as a record producer and songwriter, composing such tunes as: "Shake A Tailfeather," "Cadillac Jack," "Funky Judge" and "Twine Time." He was hired and fired as staff producer and A&R man numerous times by Barry Gordy at Motown. Mr. Rhythm (as he was nick named by Redd Foxx) produced records for Mary Wells, Stevie Wonder, The Dramatics, The Chi-Lites, Ike & Tina Turner and even penned material for George Clinton's Funkadelic. Andre was always a wild man with the ladies and never said no to a party and by the 1980s Andre Williams found himself down and out -- living on the streets and at the end of a crack pipe. In 1996 Andre bounced back in a big way -- he cleaned up his act and began making music again. His comeback album, Greasy, was recorded for the St. George and Norton labels which put him back on the live performing circuit and back in the conscious of the music buying public. In 1998 Andre released his sleaze-rock masterpiece, Silky, on In The Red Records, which proved to be a commercial and critical smash for Andre. Since the release of Silky, Andre has toured the US and Europe numerous times and his following has grown larger and larger. He toured a number of times with the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, who wound up recording with Andre as well as crediting him as executive producer on their Acme album. This record is going to be as good as it gets and so is Andre Williams. Lord have mercy!
