Hawkins Dale - L.A., Memphis & Tyler, Texas (CD)


Dale Hawkins, out of Louisiana… composer of Suzie Q” the mega-hit classic song written and recorded in 1957 by Dale and James Burton and covered by EVERYONE! Some people know of Dale’s successful production career with the likes of Mouse & The Traps, 5 Americans, Bruce Channel, Ronnie Self, Michael Nesmith and Harry Nilsson. And a few even know of his years as a top DJ, TV host, and major label A&R man (for Bell and RCA). But even they will be surprised by this amazing album!Cut on his travels whilst producing all manner of records in the three music cities of the title, ”LA, Memphis, & Tyler, Texas” is a triumph of 1969 simmering Swamp-Rock/Blues brilliance! Cut in three CLASSIC and LEGENDARY Rock ’n’ Roll studios – Joe Osborne’s in LA (famed for the lost Jan and Dean album ”Save For A Rainy Day” and the first Carpenters recordings!), Ardent in Memphis (home of so many legendary soul sessions, and the cult genius of Big Star) as well as Robin Hood Brians’ in Tyler, Texas (home of so many garage legends and soul/country classics) this stunning collection features old pal James Burton (on the cusp of swapping sessioneering for the Elvis TCB Band!) and LA stalwarts Joe Osborne and Ry Cooder, as well as Taj Mahal, Mouse And The Traps and legendary soul horn player Wayne Jackson all giving their best for an icon of Blues, R&B and Rockabilly.With INTENSIFIED sound, innovative packaging, and a detailed liner note by Tim Tooher, this is an album you need in your life! Contemporary and on an artistic par with ”Dusty In Memphis” and ”From Elvis In Memphis” this is truly a missing link in Rock and Soul history which has never been available on CD before, anywhere! ”
