Calvin Williams - Any info on who he was please ?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

He is a great vocalist. Isn't he just Calvin Williams?

One thing I have noticed is that there are 2 different label designs and pressing plants used on the Northern Del La release of "It Won't Matter At All"/"Lonely You'll Be". One is like the one pictured, and the other has GM scratched in the runout. The GM variation usually as a lot of pressing bubbles/flecks in the vinyl!

As you've probably figured out from the Soulful Detroit forum, Calvin Williams = Lloyd Williams.

After his solo career, he was a member of the Undisputed Truth during their Whitfield Records stint. 

That's him in the middle with his arms stretched out -

Also noticed the small font Northern Del La 501 has a different label address than the large font Northern Del La 501.

8910 Linwood   Detroit.

5725 14th St   Detroit.

The Telma Laverne Northern Del La 502 has the Linwood address.

Northern Del La 503 Calvin Williams "Going and Get It" has the 5725 14th St. address! 

Such a minefield this record collecting!
