(Larry Williams in 1958 - Already hitting his stride)

Some early rock n' roll tonight - or specifically, Rock n' Roll from New Orleans. Larry Williams - with the single "Bad Boy" recorded on November 24, 1958. Williams had a relatively short career. Hitting his stride in the late 1950's when he was with Specialty Records, he was responsible for a string of hits which didn't let up until his move to another label.

If you aren't familiar with him, do yourself a favor.
