There is only one Larry Williams. Which, in fact, is not true. Because Larry is a pretty common name in America. As is Williams. But this Larry Williams is a one-in-a-kind Larry Williams. He helped to shape rock ‘n’ roll in a major way.
In a better world Larry would be known by people all over the world as one of rock ‘n’ rolls originators. At this moment that is only the case with Elvis Presley. Maybe also Jerry Lee Lewis. And some people know Little Richard and Chuck Berry, but Larry Williams seems to be ignored like if he had the swine flu. He didn’t. He did have “The Rockin’ Pneumonia And The Boogie Woogie Flu” though. Permanently.
The fact that British invasion honcho’s like the Beatles (Dizzy Miss Lizzy, Slow Down & Bad Boy), the Who (Bony Moronie) and the Rolling Stones (She Said Yeah) covered his songs kinda makes it up. This little stop-and-go love song is, in my opinion, one of his nuggets.
The Upper Shelves are hottest DJ collective of the Netherlands. Or at least as hot as the wax they are spinning. Guaranteed all killer, no filler! In a country with more DJs than civil servants that's saying something!
The Upper Shelves come with one promise, we’ll burn up your dance floor with the power of the 45! Though we have been known to sneak in a vinyl LP once in a great while.
Garage, Soul, R&B and Rock & Roll is our degree, with the occasional curve ball thrown in for good measure. We’ll bring you all the great hits, including the ones you forgot.
This Blog will give you an impression of our greatness, or should I say the mind blowing power of the 45. To be honest, we just drop the needle on them.
This blog is intended primarily for promotional use. We feel this music deserves to be spread around and we encourage everybody visiting to go out and buy it. Preferably on 45, but we do not look down on the convenience of getting a CD. If in any way you feel we are violating your copy right by our posts, let us know, we’ll glad to oblige by taking the post in question down.
