Chuck Willis: I Remember Chuck Willis

Greil Marcus, Rolling Stone, 9 August 1969

EVERY ONCE IN a while something happens that reminds one of the incalculable contribution Atlantic Records has made to rock and roll and rhythm and blues.. From the intensely personal declaration of the album's title to its fourteen graceful songs, all but one written by Willis himself, I Remember Chuck Willis illuminates once again the vision of the men who founded Atlantic Records and the taste and care they have shown in maintaining the spirit of their enterprise.
