Jody Williams was a staple on Chess recordings from the early fifties through the mid-sixties, playing guitar on classic recordings by Howlin’ Wolf, Billy Boy Arnold and Bo Diddley. But in the late sixties, Jody was tired of getting ripped off. It seems quite apparent that his instrumental Lucky Lou was transformed into Otis Rush’s All Your Love (I Miss Loving), a blues and rock classic. A guitar solo Jody recorded behind Chess R&B singer Billy Stewart on his single Billy’s Blues seems to be the entire core of Mickey and Sylvia’s smash hit classic Love Is Strange. A lawsuit against RCA records over songwriting credit for that track failed, and in the late sixties Jody had had enough of the music business and quit. He spent the next three decades working as a repair technician for Xerox and then as an ATM machine repairman. Now, after thirty plus years outside of the music business, Jody Williams is launching a comeback that includes recording his first album ever: Return Of A Legend (Evidence 26120). The CD features three guitar stars who were influenced by his style—Sean Costello, Tinsley Ellis and Rusty Zinn—as well as old cohort Billy Boy Arnold, and a superb Chicago rhythm section that includes Ronnie Baker Brooks on rhythm guitar. All thirteen tracks were written by Jody, including old hits Lucky Lou, You May, Moanin’ For Molasses, and Jive Spot.
