He moved to Los Angeles in 1939, where he played with Sammy Franklin's California Rhythm Rascals and other groups. When Franklin turned down a chance to record Liggins' song "The Honeydripper", Liggins decided to start his own band. The original Joe Liggins and His Honeydrippers recordings were issued on the Exclusive Records imprint of brothers Leon and Otis René . Joe Liggins' Honeydrippers was formed in the basement of the Los Angeles home of the saxophonist Little Willie Jackson , who co-founded the group and who, at the time of his death in 2001, was the last original surviving member of the Honeydrippers. [4] "The Honeydripper" topped the R&B chart, then called the race chart , for 18 weeks in 1945. More than 60 years later, "The Honeydripper" remains tied with Louis Jordan 's " Choo Choo Ch'Boogie " for the longest-ever stay at the top of that chart. It logged a reported two million sales. [5]
