A US, Georgia-born singer and songwriter, he made his first records for OKeh in 1951, but his first big success came in 1955 when Little Willie John had a Top 10 R&B hit with the Turner composition, All Around The World. The song was revived as Grits Ain't Groceries by Little Milton in 1969. Turner made other singles for Wing and Atlantic before in 1959 he had his first hits with a pair of ‘answer’ songs to current bestsellers by Lloyd Price, a singer with a similar style to Turner's. The Return Of Stag-O-Lee (King) was a follow-up to Staggerlee while Turner's We Told You Not To Marry (Glover), was a riposte to I'm Gonna Get Married. In 1961, Turner had a minor pop hit with a revival of Sound Off, produced by Al Gallico on Jamie, but this was overshadowed by Ray Charles’ success with Sticks And Stones, the powerful gospel blues which is Turner's best-known composition. During the '60s, Turner discovered blues singer Tommy Tucker and worked with producer Herb Abramson. He continued to record a range of blues, soul, novelty and disco material for such companies as Josie, Atco, Philips and Mala.
