Big whoop, though, if you were twelve, hiding the transistor under your pillow. He sounds like what he was. A man in his own world—not to mention his own league. Billie Holiday without the delicacy or the death rattle. Within a year, she would be officially, sweetly old-fashioned.
A sign of just how fast the times would change. The ultimate in comic menace. Certainly more convincing on both counts, the comedy and the menace than anything Quentin Tarantino and his ten thousand fan-boy imitators have managed. And up top the meanwhile? Clyde being Clyde. The dynamics were not quite where they would be in a year or two, but the bed of harmonies was allowing more and more extreme flights of fancy up top.
And that bed was getting deeper by the minute—a once-sleepy pond growing into a roiling ocean. And Williams? He ended up singing country. Some things are meant to be…and too perfect to make up.
There was excitement in the air and plenty of it…but except for maybe Clyde McPhatter and Elvis nothing resembling a threat to the existing order.

Whatever they did, they did to the limit. The cast of characters changed but the basics remained. Hard-edged vocals Mostly from Johnny Tanner in the first decade-plus and mostly from Eudell Graham at the very end.
Equally hard-edged blues-with-a-difference guitar slinging from Lowman Pauling, who also wrote the bulk of their material. They had a small run of hits in the fifties. His singing, as always, was merely serviceable, but suitably respectful of the material and the styles to which he was paying homage.
