Dicky Williams

If you could pick one modern example of that earthy, downhome, story-telling, chitlin' circuit Soul/Blues  Mr. Dicky Williams would fill the spot quite nicely. One thing's for sure he's one of the most underrated Soul/Bluesmen of our era. Like one-time fellow labelmate Chick Willis (Ichiban Records) Williams became known for bawdy songs like "Come Back P***y" & "I Want You For Breakfast" but he's actually a strong Soul singer/songwriter in the Otis Redding vein even without the x-rated shtick. Williams claims to have written "over 200 lbs" worth of songs- most of which have yet to be released!

Dicky's recording career dates back to the novelty 45 "Tee Na Na" in 1960 followed by scattered singles for Metro ("That's Where True Love Began"), Backfire ("Ride The Wind"), Pledge ("Heartache Hill") & Ace Records ("You Got A Good Thing Going On") before his first LP dropped in 1978 on Backfire Records, the highly sought after collector's item "Triple Dyn-o-mite". After a single or two more, including "Touching You" for Sirco in 1984, his second album, "Red Negligee', White Whiskey & Blue Lights" was released in 1986.

His greatest success to date came after signing with Atlanta's Ichiban Records. In 1989 he released "In Your Face", which produced the aforementioned "Come Back P***y" and his stone classic "In The Same Motel" (which also appeared on his "Red Negligee" record). He followed it up with 2 more records for ichiban before releasing two obscure records on his own in 1996 & 2003. In 2007 he recorded a new Blues/Rock album with guitarist Ken Massey, featuring the semi-popular song "Dog Kinda Love". In 2011 he teamed with Jerry Teel of Unity Deep promotions for a Country Gospel album.
