Andre Williams - Nightclub - lp
Andre Williams does not need an introduction anymore. At age 80 his career has taken him around the world and back, spanning 50 years with more ups and downs than most people would survive. Garage rockers, meet your spiritual ancestor. AW is a rock-n-roll survivor, a musician whose credits stretch back to the 1950s, a former session player with Ike & Tina Turner who reinvigorated his career with a string of late 90s garage rock albums like Red Dirt and Silky. He continued to tour the world, write songs, write books and generally entertain anyone sitting next to him with his stories and charisma. With this 5 track Mini-LP, Andre has teamed up with his touring band the Goldstars, to assemble a collection of fine songs, that reflects his current sound and attitude. Williams has little left to prove, so if the guy wants to sing about women - as he does, one way or another, on every track here - I'm sure not going to tell him NO. It is one part garage rock, one part R&B and part Andre Williams, having fun in doing his thing. This is a soulful record, a dance record and a reflective record of an icon still at work as a world-class entertainer. Finally it is available, but only in a very limited edition. So better be fast!
