1. Product Details

Various sessions with Texas legends Bugs Henderson and Ronnie Weiss Mouse & The Traps Taj Mahal Ry Cooder James Burton Joe Osborne and the Memphis Horns a. o. Newly mastered for this exquisite 180-gram pressing with the original cover artwork. Sure. When the name Dale Hawkins is mentioned it is mostly associated with Suzie-Q one of the great classics of rockabilly and garage rock of the sixties. Originally influenced by Elvis Presley and especially Scotty Moore Hawkins later used all kinds of musical sources from country music and blues to rock and soul. After his big success Suzie-Q it became quieter around Dale Hawkins. He left Chess Records in 1961 but he continued to record regularly for a variety of larger and smaller labels but appeared less in public. In the background he worked on a new career as a record producer. At the end of the sixties and while under contract with Bell Records as a producer he developed the concept of a Roots music album. He arranged for several recording sessions in California Texas and Tennessee. Wherever he recorded he was accompanied by some of the best local musicians. For his Rockabilly fans the 1969 album must have been a shock The album still had some reminiscences of his early years but these were overshadowed by Texas garage rock with Mouse & The Traps featuring the great Bugs Henderson and Ronnie Weiss on guitars the coolness of a Los Angeles production of those days and the fantastic horn arrangements from L. A. and Memphis. L. A. Memphis And Tyler Texas lives on the energy of the early Roots rocker the original straight rockabilly but adds a lot of blues and country rock and soul - and everything in between.
