JIMMY WILLIAMS - THE HALF MAN


Don't know much of anything about Jimmy Williams, although this track is the b-side to "I Gave My Love A Cherry" (yes, the song that was immortalized in "Animal House").

This blistering track, which stays on one chord throughout, pre-dates James Brown's one chord workouts by almost four years! I love how the fact that it doesn't change builds up all kinds of musical tension while the piano licks stay so grounded. A very unique record indeed.

from 1963...
