"Little Willie John" Woods introduced the quavering gospel falsetto
(that James Brown learned from him).
The melancholy of
Need Your Love So Bad (1956), perhaps his most intense performance,
and Sufferin' With The Blues (1956)
established the quintessential soul mood,
while the first version of Otis Blackwell's Fever (1956) created
an even more passionate style of singing.
A master of the romantic ballad, Little Willie penned
Talk To Me (1958), Let Them Talk (1959), I'm Shakin' (1960), You Hurt Me (1960), Sleep (1961), Take My Love (1962).
He died in 1968 at 31 of pneumonia in prison.
