Harold "Chuck" Willis (January 31, 1926 – April 10, 1958) was an American blues, rhythm and blues, and rock and roll singer and songwriter. His biggest hits, "C. C. Rider" (1957) and "What Am I Living For" (1958), both reached N. on the Billboard R&B chart. He was known as The King of the Stroll for his performance of the 1950s dance the stroll. Willis was born in Atlanta, Georgia, in 1926.

The Best of Chuck Willis. The King of the Stroll. Don't Deceive Me. 2007. Chuck Willis Wails! The Complete Recordings, 1951-1956. What Am I Living For - 4 Track EP. 2010. Original Sound: The King of the Stroll. See All. Soul On Fire: The Best of LaVerne Baker.

It is pity that he passed on in 1955, and could not witness the fruits of his labor. A prolific songwriter, Willis wrote 12 of the 14 tracks on this solid collection, though his claim to have written ". Rider" is specious at best. As a vocalist whose singing parallels Fats Domino's, his wailing, shouting, belting, and crooning have always set a high standard for the soul brothers that followed

I Remember Chuck Willis, 1963. I Remember Chuck Willis, 1963.

But Chuck Willis, with 14 charted R&B hits, five of which also made the pop charts, four in the Top 40, and who is the father of The Stroll, one of the most popular dance crazes of the late 1950's, is not yet in the Hall. What's wrong with this picture? In this 25-selection compilation which pulls together two of his vinyl LPs, Collectables amply demonstrates why he should be considered as they present his nine Atlantic hits AND their B-sides, along with some of his better album cuts. In addition to perfect sound quality you also get the original LP liner notes written by Jack Walker (for the I Remember Chuck Willis album) and Guy Remark for The King Of The Stroll LP). AND if you want his first five hits for Columbia's Okeh subsidiary, registered from 1952 to 1954, they're ALL on the CD Let's Jump Tonight - The Best Of Chuck Willis.
