    Description

    "Chuck Willis Wails The Blues" LP Epic 3425 (1958). Willis' first album was released the year he died tragically from a bleeding stomach ulcer at age 30. But he had already made his place in R&B history. One of the few to successfully transition from his original R&B roots to Rock, he showed an astonishing range, from fueling "The Stroll" dance craze with his "C. C. Rider" to his greatest crossover soul ballad "What Am I Living For" to the classic rocker "Hang Up My Rock and Roll Shoes." His hits were on Atlantic, but this album shows that range, and is a revelation. Condition: NM 8/ NM 8.
