New Orleans R&B legend vocalist Lloyd Price had a handful of seminal hits in the 1950s, including the indelible "Lawdy Miss Clawdy." The 34-track LLOYD ROCKS is a definitive hits collection, bridging the raw, New Orleans proto-rock & roll of "Lawdy Miss Clawdy," his fierce cover of the classic blues "Stagger Lee," and the catchy pop confection "Personality." A must for lovers of early R&B, vintage rock & roll, and classic New Orleans R&B, LLOYD ROCK pleases from start to finish. An insert containing photos, interviews, and notes puts the icing on the cake.
