Fever : Little Willie John's Fast Life, Strange Death, and the Birth of Soul Hardback
This is the first-ever official biography of the unjustly forgotten 'Father of Soul Music'.
A notable R'n'B chart success in his day, his songs are now better known through covers, such as Peggy Lee's version of "Fever".
Mystery surrounds his death in prison, attributed by some to a beating by a guard.
Gone at the age of 30, he remains one of the most important voices in black music.
