Lloyd PriceLloyd Price: 1952-53

The legendary Lloyd Price joins Matt The Cat on the “Juke In The Back” this week to discuss his early career on Specialty Records and the recording of “Lawdy Miss Clawdy.” Lloyd paints a picture of New Orleans during the early 1950s that you won’t hear anywhere else. Mr. Price also gives us the “story behind the story” on how he wrote “Just Because” and how his cousin Larry Williams tried to take it away from him. His greatest records from 1952-53 are also featured on this very special edition of the “Juke In The Back.”
