CHARLY RECORDS  1988                        CRB 1181 

Born in New Orleans in 1937. His first successful release was on Tiger records USA,
 a subsidiary label owned by Jerry Lieber and Mike Stoller. They moved Alvin
 to Red Bird for his next release; 'Fever'/ 'Down Home Girl'. Down Home Girl was 
the 'b' side and played more often at UK and Belgium soul clubs, as Fever by 
Little Willie John would take precedence on a DJ's play list, due to the fact that 
these clubs (Wheel/Blue Note) preferred originals. That said, 
Alvin's version of Fever is extremely good.
He played on Dr John Gumbo album.
