What's her name?

Willie Harper isn't that well known even though he actually recorded quite a bit. That's him singing back-up on numerous Allen Toussaint productions. He was also the lead singer for the Del-Royals, recorded a series of duets with Toussaint under the names, The Man & Willie Harper, The Rubaiyats, and Willie & Allen.....and had 5 or 6 singles issued under his own name.

I'd say about half of these records are pretty hard to find...in fact, I've never even heard three of them.

Anyway, here's one you don't hear that often. If you check the label credits you'll see that it's not a Toussaint production....Big Q is Wardell Quezerque.

Hope ya enjoy...it's from 1968.
