Lou (Loise E) Wilson was born in Senatobia Mississippi with his family later moving to Memphis Tennessee.
As a perfomer Lou’s recording career stretches back to the fifties, where as a founder member of Wade Flemons & the New Comers he recorded a top R & B hit with “Here I Stand” for Chicago’s Vee-Jay Records. As a solo performer Lou experienced further success with “This Love Is Getting Deeper” which appeared on the Kent Records subsidiary label, Supreme.
Lou’s Next release “Got to Be Me” appeared on Columbia Records, this time under the name of Lou Edwards and Today’s People. The success of this release was not only confined to the U.S.A. Import copies of this 45 soon found there way into England reaching a whole army of new fans. It was the flipside of the Columbian release “Talkin’ ‘Bout Poor Folks Thinkin’ ‘Bout My Folks” that caught the imagination of the Northern Soul Scene, and is regarded as an all time classic of this genre.
Lou and his family had by now relocated to Kalamazoo Michigan. A further three releases appeared on the Detroit Crew label. Culminating in the acclaimed, 2005 cd album, “Blues Groove” which Lou released on his own Frontline Label.
It is from Lou’s current cd album “Money Talk” that Soul Junction has lifted these two excellent southern soul tracks for its latest 45 release
“Settle Down” b/w “Around the Corner from Love”
