Little Willie Littlefield

Little Willie Littlefield began his career as a recording artist at the age of 16 for Eddie's Records in Houston. His first recording “Little Willie's Boogie” was a hit in Texas. In Houston Willie recorded 8 tracks for Eddie's Records and Freedom Records in 1948/1949.

While in Houston, word reached the Bihari brothers (owners of the Modern-label in Los Angeles) about a teenage wonderboy pianist who was currently breaking up at the Eldorado Ballroom. Before leaving Houston Jules Bihari had already inked a contract, recorded Littlefield's first side “It's Midnight” and arranged for Littlefield to come to the West Coast.
