February 24, 1994 | BUDDY SEIGAL, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
Jr. Walker always was an anomaly at Motown Records--blacker, funkier, greasier, more rooted in traditional R&B than in the high-gloss stylizations of such Motown superstars as the Supremes, the Miracles and the Temptations. Most Motown acts evoked mental images of silk tuxedos, polished Italian shoes and Hollywood glitter. Walker's honking tenor sax and raucous, down-home vocals brought to mind bubbling pots of chitlins, wild rent parties and Dixie Peach Pomade.
