Probably born in Mississippi. Love was not recorded for Sun, but for Chess and his first disc, "Drop Top", was a rhythm and blues hit of sorts. After two singles, though, he was dropped as a vocalist and he continued to be used only as a session man with singers like Rufus Thomas, Willie Nix and Walter Smith. In 1955 he left Memphis, possibly for Detroit having previously been there with Sonny Bay Williamson. His recordings are fine jump blues and he is recalled by many Memphis and Mississippi bluesmen, but little is known of him before 1951 or after 1954. He played with Bobby Bland, Rosco Gordon, Willie Nix and Willie Love, who may have been a relative, and he was on the first hit to emerge from Phillips' studio, "Rocket 88" by Jackie Brenston.
