AL COOL DADDY SMITH AND A TRIBUTE TO BILLY WRIGHT IN ROCK-IT RADIO SHOW #4651
This show pays tribute to the man without whom Little Richard may never have become the major Rock and Roll figure that he did. He is perhaps remembered only for his role in influencing Little Richard's flamboyant style but he had a body of work of his own that is just as impressive as Little Richard's. In fact , Little Richard's first recordings are basically impersonations of Billy Wright. Billy Wright was also an influence on such greats as Otis Redding and James Brown.
It is time to shine a spotlight on this forgotten but immensely important founder of Rock and Roll.
The play list is as follows:
1. Billy's Boogie-Billy Wright 1950 2. I Keep Drinkin'-Billy Wright 1950 3. Ain't That Good News- Little Richard with The Deuces of Rhythm and The Tempo Toppers 1953 4. New Way of Lovin' -Billy Wright 1952 5. Turn Your Lamps Down Low-Billy Wright 1952 6. Blues For My Baby-Billy Wright 1949 7. You Satisfy-Billy Wright 1949 8. Mean Old Wine-Billy Wright 1951 9. Stacked Deck-Billy Wright 1951 10. Hey Little Girl-Billy Wright 1951 11. Little Richard's Boogie 1956 12. Directly From My Heart-Little Richard 1956 13. Married Woman's Boogie-Billy Wright 1952 14. The Question (What'Cha Gonna Do)-Billy Wright 1955 15. Bad Luck, Heartaches and Trouble-Billy Wright 1955 16. Don't You Want A Man Like Me-Billy Wright 1955 17. Let's Be Friends-Billy Wright 1955 18. This Love of Mine-Billy Wright 1951 19. Mercy, Mercy-Billy Wright 1951 20. After Dark-Billy Wright 1951 21. Man's Brand Boogie-Billy Wright 1950 22. Back Biting Woman 1950
