Ralph Thomas Williams was born on April 13th, 1940 in New York City, but raised in Detroit. He performed as a singer and made his first recordings for the small Stepp label in the late 1950’s. He wrote the songs “Pushover” and “Two Sides to Every Story”, hits for Etta James and Billy Davis. He had his first chart entry in 1964 with “(The Story of) Woman, Love and a Man”, which reached No. 88 on the R & B chart. He had more success with his own song, “The Entertainer”, which hit No. 10 on the R&B charts and No. 31 on the Pop charts in the U.S. in 1965. In 1966, he moved from Detroit to Hollywood. He was fatally shot by his estranged wife when he broke into her house in Detroit on August 28th, 1971. This disc from 1965, has one superficial mark, otherwise is conservatively graded in VG++ condition, worth checking out the great mid tempo flip
