Nappy Brown - Little By Little - I'm Getting Lonesome
Napoleon Brown Culp (October 12, 1929 – September 20, 2008), better known by his stage name Nappy Brown, was an American R & B singer.
Nappy Brown was among the biggest stars in R&B, frequently touring with the legendary revues of Alan Freed. His songs, along with those of his peers and contemporaries (such as Little Richard, Chuck Berry, and Fats Domino), were among the first wave of African-American pop music to become noticed and popular with white audiences.
In addition to Brown's influence on blues music, and 1950s R&B and pop, Brown's powerful and protean voice, combined with his distinctive emotive style, is widely viewed as a key link in the development of Soul music.
This jam was released in 1956.
Every time i listen to some Nappy i feel the need to go out and find more of his records that i don't own. Hope you feel the same way...?
