Please help me - TROPHY INTERNATIONAL 1502Sonny Williams

The Lexington, KY Trophy International label had a couple of soul 45s in its small catalogue. The Houserockers had one of them, and their featured singer Sonny Williams fronted the other. The dead slow ListenPlease Help Me is a tour de force for Williams, so raw, hard hitting and emotionally compelling. Great sense of timing too. I like the meandering sax as well – super little label soul.




ListenPlease help me / I’ll understand ~ TROPHY INTERNATIONAL 1502 (1964/5)

Note ~ You can find the Houserockers 45 here.
