This was a nice, post-album (Bait And Switch) session at NYHed. It was for a single on Norton Records and Andre was at his best: relaxed, funny, clear eyed and typically brilliant. We’ll miss his rare talent and charisma. RIP Andre

Andre Williams - Soul Brother in Heaven and Hell

Andre Williams. What a great and complex man. The brilliant poetry, stage presence, energy and inventiveness housed in the wiry, dynamic frame of a unique star. A consummate showman, Andre was always “on”. As hilariously biting and quick-witted as Dolemite and Mark Twain, Andre was a brilliant, one-of-a-kind musician, songwriter, producer and human being. We will miss him. 💔


Bait and Switch (2001) 1. Detroit Michigan 2. Get This Love Off Of My Mind 3. I Ain't Guilty 4. Bait And Switch 5. Put That Skillet Away 6. Sling It Bang It ...

Ivan Julian has employed tireless sleuth work to source parts from secret caches of "new old stock" electronics, including matched and fully tested vacuum tubes, glowing bakelite meters, capacitors, resistors and the ultimate kicker, enormous iron transformers that predate what was current material when the original LA2As were being manufactured. Clients still love the feel and sound of a signal path that includes our Teletronix LA2A. They come to joyful attention when we engage the magical better-than-retro Lumpstar!
