Little Milton

Little Milton/ James Milton Campbell Jr. was born in Inverness, Mississippi in 1934. At age 12, he began playing the guitar and by 15, he was performing for pay in local clubs and bars, influenced chiefly by T-Bone Walker and other blues artists and discovered by Ike Turner.  Little Milton had his big breakthrough with 1965's "We're Gonna Make It," from the “We’re Gonna Make It” LP, which hit number one on the R&B charts. “We're Gonna Make It" kicked off a successful string of R&B chart singles that occasionally reached the Top Ten, highlighted by "Who's Cheating Who?," "Grits Ain't Groceries," "If Walls Could Talk," "Baby I Love You," and "Feel So Bad," among others.  Little Milton recorded frequently and steadily for Malaco, issuing 13 albums. In 1988, he won the W.C. Handy Award for Blues Entertainer of the Year, and was also inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame.  Little Milton died on August 4, 2005 from complications following a stroke.
