His boogie-woogie piano style set the tempo of early Rock and Roll. Now, know mainly as a Blues artists, Elvis Presley and Little Richard were Big Walter's early contemporaries.
In mid-career, his insistence of being treated fairly angered record companies, booking agencies and venue operators. He found himself being passed over while other people profited for his music. Years of legal actions stopped many, but the lawyers were the only winners. In fact, almost all of the Big Walter recording on the market today is not properly licensed.
Still robust at the age of 90, Big Walter is releasing his music to the world. His 4 CD's "Tell Me", "Pain In My Heart", "Six Weeks Of Misery", and "Cool Breeze" has a total of 46 great tracks!
