    Williams, Dub

    One of the original co-writers of "Release Me", Williams was in a band with fellow composers Eddie Miller and Robert Yount in the late 1940s.  For some inexplicable reason, Miller and Yount agreed with Four Star Records entrepreneur William McCall that his pseudonym W.S. Stevenson should replace Williams' name in 1957.
