On Sunday, March 11th, the Numero Group lost a close friend and partner. Felton Williams, founder of Double U Sound and the Revival label, passed suddenly while his beloved wife, Ida, was at church. After surviving several heart attacks, his time came. Until the end, he was a vibrant, loving man who never lost his love of the steel guitar or flair for electronics. His story inspired our Local Customs series of releases, and the documentary included with our Downriver Revival release focused on his beautiful character, and we just revisited his vaults and issued some of the gorgeous recordings he made with Shirley Ann Lee. He will be long remembered. Here’s a little outtake from the documentary that tells his story:
