Lloyd Price – an American R&B singer whose first recording, “Lawdy Miss Clawdy”, was a hit in 1952. He continued to release records, but none were as popular until several years later, when he achieved a series of national hits including “Where Were You (On Our Wedding Day)”, “Personality”,“Just Because” and “Stagger Lee”. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1998.

One of the more potent rhythm & blues shouters of the 1950s, he had formal training on trumpet and piano, sang in his church’s gospel choir in his early years. He began his career singing gritty New Orleans-style material for Specialty Records that made him a star on the R&B charts with numbers like “Lawdy Miss Clawdy” (1952) and “Tell Me Pretty Baby” (1953). However, in the late ’50s he jumped to the ABC-Paramount label, and glossier production and more full-bodied arrangements helped him scale the pop charts, scoring hit singles like “Stagger Lee” (1958) and “Personality” (1959).
