Louisiana singer, guitarist and composer Dale Hawkins is a true hero of rock & roll. His debut LP from 1958 Oh! Suzy- Q is a true classic album. The record helped defne exactly what was (and was not) rock & roll. 

At a time when exposure to many kinds of music was the norm, Hawkins absorbed them all like a sponge. But his distinct preference for black music would always exert the greatest infuence, giving his music a harder edge than that of most of his contemporaries.

His swamp rock gem, "Susie-Q," crackles with the manic energy of that restless time and conjures instant images of steamy Southern nights. The song has since been covered by the likes of The Rolling Stones, The Velvet Underground, Bruce Springsteen, and most famously, Creedence Clearwater Revival in 1968. This defnitive & remastered edition of Hawkins' most famous and essential album includes twelve bonus tracks from his early years on the Checker Record label and features a virtual who's who' of great sidemen; Willie Dixon, James Burton, Roy Buchanan, Lafayette Leake and Elvis' original sidemen Scotty Moore and D.J.
Fontana, among others.

"Hawkins is a master of swamp rock, lowdown boogie and straight ahead rock'n'roll...A must have for anyone interested in what rock'n'roll is all about." - Rock & Blues News
