HARRIS, Wee Willie: I Go Ape! The Wee Willie Harris Story CD
[RCCD 3074]

A 30-track CD featuring the best of Wee Willie Harris, with several previously unissued tracks and released to accompany Rob Finnis's authorised biography of Harris (see separate listing) this is Rockin' With Wee Willie at his best. Sporting a cascading cluster of long pink curls and garish drape jackets with his name emblazoned across the back, or cavorting half-naked in leopard skins, Wee Willie Harris brought a flash of technicolor to grim and grimy post-war Britain. Thrust untrained into the entertainment spotlight, Harris was briefly a star without portfolio in the earliest days of British Rock'n'Roll when he swung to a solid beat while others stumbled and fell. Learning as he went, he quickly developed into a capable entertainer with a lifelong career ahead of him. 'I first saw Wee Willie Harris on the Tonight show with Cliff Michelmore in 1958. He stood up on on his own & played piano & sung, 'Yes it's me & I'm in Love Again'. I thought he was fantastic. He was my kind of act. The next time I saw Wee Willie he was supporting Cliff Richard at Walthamstow Granada in 1959. He came on in a leopard skin leotard & dived in the piano singing 'I Go Ape'. Cliff Richard & the Shadows (then known as the Drifters) were good, but Wee Willie's act was more memorable. He was & still is one of Great Britain's greatest Rock'n'Rollers.' (Chas Hodges) 'Wee Willie Harris, one of the most neglected and underrated stars of the British Rock Scene. He was there at the birth of Rock in the UK. His pink hair was a great gimmick to start with, but although that and the leopard skin gained him international recognition, it tended to divert the attention from his perfor-mance as a blues and rock singer of considerable ability. This 'best of' CD will provide the key to unlocking the true qualities of Wee Willie Harris, Rock God!
