Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. James Milton Campbell, Jr. (September 7, 1934 - August 4, 2005), better known as Little Milton, was an American blues and soul singer and guitarist, best known for his hit records "Grits Ain't Groceries" and "We're Gonna Make It." Milton was born James Milton Campbell, Jr., in the Mississippi Delta town of Inverness and raised in Greenville by a farmer and local blues musician. By age twelve he had learned the guitar and was a street musician, chiefly influenced by T-Bone Walker and his blues and rock and roll contemporaries. In 1952, while still a teenager playing in local bars, he caught the attention of Ike Turner, who was at that time a talent scout for Sam Phillips' Sun Records. He signed a contract with the label and recorded a number of singles. None of them broke through onto radio or sold well at record stores, however, and Milton left the Sun label by 1955.show more
