During the period covered by this compilation, Little Willie John was moving into more orchestrated, pop-oriented material and arrangements than he'd used on his initial mid-'50s R&B hit singles for the King label. The change wasn't at all for the worse; he still put a lot of bluesy feeling into this form of blues-R&B-pop-rock & roll, getting his two biggest pop hits with "Talk to Me, Talk to Me" and "Sleep.

William Edward "Little Willie" John (November 15, 1937 – May 26, 1968) was an American R&B singer who performed in the 1950s and early 1960s. He is best known for his successes on the record charts, with songs such as "All Around the World" (1955), "Need Your Love So Bad" (1956), and "Fever" (1956). An important figure in R&B music of the 1950s, John was posthumously inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1996.
Willie John was of course a magnificent singer, and he is well-served here both by the strength of the material, and the first class musicianship of the New York and Cincinnati studio bands. The songs are a mixture of mid-tempo items and stunning blues ballads and it is their sheer strength (and the quality of the song-writing) to which I would draw particular attention. There is no doubt that for these early sessions, veteran King producer Henry Glover fed Willie songs which matched and suited his talent. And full marks to the re-mastering engineer who has really captured that rich King studio ambience. This is a CD of great R&B songs by a great singer. By Richard Tapp (Juke Blues Magazine).
