It'll make you happy....

This could be the same Bobby Williams who did "Funky Superfly", but everyone's so busy trying to sell me some version of a "Funky Superfly" collection online that I haven't been able to confirm this, nor for that matter find any info on any Bobby Williams who might fit the specs. As I'm sure you're aware, there are times when google is worse than useless.

There are at least three guys who recorded under name the name Bobby Williams, and more likely six or eight.

Anyway, this Bobby Williams recorded six singles for Sure Shot, which I believe was part of Don Robey's Duke/Peacock/Backbeat family of labels [?]. This is the first of those releases, from 1964.

And a cool one it is too. Nice gospel type swing, some tasty guitar licks, and a kind of fake handclap break towards the end that really should've been used at least once more in the tune.

Hope ya'll enjoy.....


  1. Another brilliant record I am hearing for the first time thanks to you. Now I gotta scoot over to Gemm Music and hope that I can find a copy for myself. MP3's are great but sometimes I just need to own the real thing.

  2. This is really nice, thanks!
