Biography

ANDRE WILLIAMS
Hustler, producer, singer, songwriter, raconteur, bon vivant, and most recently author, Andre Williams is nothing short of a legend. Beginning with his greasy R&B hits "Bacon Fat" and "Jail Bait” for Detroit’s Fortune records in 1957, Andre was well on his way to earning the nickname the “Black Godfather.” Throughout the ‘60s ...

Editorial Reviews

After a few hard years in "retirement", Andre stormed back and has since recorded with Dirt Bombs, Jon Spencer, Two-Star Tabernacle,(which included a young Jack White) and many others. Andre tells it like it is, and if you get all bashful with the blue language, you might want to steer clear--this guy can make Redd Foxx (who gave him his nickname) look like Bill Cosby. Don't let the shtick fool you, as the man has put together some of the most bad-ass soul shakers in the history of music. He strips away all the sheen and shoots musical arrows right to your goodie spot. Music at its most feral.

By Jim Clark

Andre Williams sings he "just needs one step above the ghetto, that's all I need."
He should know. Twenty years ago if you were on a Chicago bridge you would found Andre, homeless, drug addicted and begging for money.
And that wasn't the first time the 74-year-old R&B'blues artist had hit bottom. He hit it early when his mama died when he was six and raised by his "aunties."
All that's in the past. Andre now over dresses in three piece lavender suits, with a zoot hat and large Turquoise ring and brings audiences, young and old, to their feet with his scanting lyrics of street life delivered over hollow drums and fuzz guitars. His latest CD, That's All I Need, recently released on Bloodshot Records.
Andre had previous high-points too. He co-wrote Stevie Wonder's first song "Thank You for Loving Me," "Shake a Tail Feather,"'for the Five Du-Tones and "Twine Time" for Ike and Tina Turner.
After kicking the crack habit in the late 90s he released Silky considered one of the most over-the-top street CDs ever.
That's All I Need picks up from there.
Pay attention to the cuts "When Love Shoots You In the Foot,"'"Cigarettes and My Old Lady" and "There Ain't No Such Thing As Good Dope." Cow punk is back.

With Dennis Coffey present on guitar, Andre Williams turns in a stellar "talking blues" CD. At least three of the tracks deserve immortality - "That's All I Need", "Tricks" and "Amends", This CD is certainly more main stream blues/ R & B than some of Mr. Williams' recent output - and he is to be admired and congratulated at the age of 75 - and a life style that is the stuff of legend - for continuing his contributions. On this CD, Mr. Williams certainly matches up to the late Gil Scott-Heron and his voice has some of the authority of William Burroughs in his later years. Good stuff

Another great record by the great Andre Williams. I actually like his followup ("Life") a bit more, but this one is still really good.

"That's All I Need" is full of those infectious grooves and biting vocal commentary Williams is famous for in his recent output. If you enjoy the stylings of guys like Leonard Cohen and Tom Waits, give Andre Williams a listen. He doesn't sound just like them but he does conjure a similar mood.
