Check out these new and used Little Milton vinyl records LPs for sale. Little Milton was born in 1934 in Mississippi and influenced by his father, who was a farmer and blues musician. By age 15, he was playing in local bars and eventually got to backup Sonny Boy Williamson and caught the attention of Ike Turner who was out scouting for Sam Phillips of Sun Records. Milton’s first success recording was on the Bobbin Label which he set up with his DJ friend Bob Lyons. Milton brought musicians such as Albert King on to the Bobbin label. Milton had his big success with 1965’s We’re Gonna Make It, which was a big hit on the R&B charts.
