"A prodigious guitarist at an early age, Willie GeorgeHale earned the nickname ""Little Beaver"" fromfriends in family in Arkansas, remarking on hisprominent teeth. Over the years Hale would make aname for himself as a reliable session guitarist,appearing on recordings by Betty Wright, AlKooper, and Blowfly, and gradually developing hisown distinct, rhythmic style of blues guitar playing.As the mid-70s approached Hale would embark onhis own solo career, cutting albums and singles withFlorida's TK Records, working alongside famedmusicians like Jaco Pastorius, Benny Latimore, andTimmy Thomas. His career effectively ended in the1980s with TK's collapse, but he would find new lifein 2003 after performing on several Joss Stonealbums, and his works would be sampled in hip-hoptunes by the likes of Jay-Z, Slum Village, andPeople Under The Stairs.Hale's solo debut (Released under the Little Beavermoniker) came in 1972 and was titled Joey. Thealbum found minor commercial success, and setthe groundwork for Hale's continuing solo career.Joey featured a variety of takes on classic blues,ranging from the bounding, shuffling chart hit ""I'mLosin' The Feelin'"", to the lushly orchestrated BBKing-like ""That's How It Is"", all bolstered with Hale'sexclusive take on the blues guitar sound. Songsfrom Joey would later be covered by GwenMcCrae, and Blowfly, among others."
