Happy New Year

Not In My Lifetime

Latest Release - CD and 12" Vinyl LP

The final recording of soul legend Wee Willie Walker & The Anthony Paule Soul Orchestra. After releasing singles on Checker and Goldwax Wee Willie Walker stayed close to his home in Minneapolis for decades. After re-emerging in 2015 on the national and international scene Willie has released three critically acclaimed albums. Not In My Lifetime is the fourth. Only three days after the recording sessions wrapped up, Willie passed away suddenly and unexpectedly. For this reason the release is bittersweet, but a fitting addition to Walker’s legacy. He finished on a high note…literally. The legendary Jim Gaines was brought in to produce this. The results are nothing short of breath taking!
