“THE WHEELER–DEALER ROCK’N’ROLL PIONEER!”  (Record Collector Magazine)

2 LPs ON 1 CD

Not entirely content with being a 1950s R&B star on the strength of his immortal New Orleans classic "Lawdy Miss Clawdy," singer Lloyd Price  yearned for massive pop acceptance. He found it, too, with a storming rock & roll reading of the ancient blues "Stagger Lee" and the unabashedly pop-slanted "Personality" and "I'm Gonna Get Married". The two original albums packaged here, Exciting Lloyd Price and Mr. “Personality”, were recorded at the beginning of his career with ABC-Paramount; the label that issued his biggest smash hits. Recorded in absolutely breathtaking stereo sound that greatly enhances the brass-heavy arrangements, this CD edition is a rare find.

“These songs were meant to be rock & roll hits, and they not only were, they're among the best of their kind from the late '50s. Essential music.” - (All Music Guide)
