Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered and expanded edition of this 1958 album. Louisiana singer, guitarist and composer Dale Hawkins's debut album helped define exactly what was (and was not) Rock 'n' 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 influence, giving his music a harder edge than that of most of his contemporaries. This definitive edition includes Hawkins' most famous and essential album plus 12 bonus tracks from his early and best years on the Checker Record label. Hoo Doo Records. 2010.

Format: Audio CD
If what you are seeking are all four Checker hit singles registered by Dale Hawkins from 1957 to 1959, with excellent sound reproduction and informative notes, I would refer you to the September 2011 Jasmine Music volume "Susie Q - The Singles As & Bs 1956-60 [Original Recordings Remastered]" and the excellent review there by Harry Ringel. This October 2010 offering from Hoo Doo, the full contents of which are shown in the Comments below) comes up short in that regard as it omits his third charter.

Born Delmar Allen Hawkins in Goldmine, Oklahoma on August 22, 1938, Dale Hawkins (who was first cousin of the great Ronnie Hawkins), broke in with the Checker subsidiary of Chess Records in 1956 with the single See You Soon, Baboon b/w Four Letter Word (Rock) on Checker 843. While that answer song of sorts to See You Later Alligator failed to chart nationally, he more than made up for that with the follow-up Susie-Q. Recorded at radio station KWKH in Shreveport, Louisiana, it reached # 7 R&B and # 27 Top 100 in the summer of 1957 b/w Don't Treat Me This Way on Checker 863. All four of these sides are here.

That success, unfortunately, did not carry over into the next two releases - Baby, Baby/Mrs. Merguitory's Daughter (Checker 876) and Little Pig/Tornado (Checker 892) - both of which failed, but in September 1958 he had La-Do-Dada make the Top 40 at # 32 b/w Cross Ties on Checker 900 (all 6 sides are included). But for reasons known only to the producer, they omit A House, A Car And A Wedding Ring, not a huge hit by any stretch as it only made it to # 88 Top 100 late in 1958 on Checker 906, but it did chart, unlike the B-side, My Babe, which IS included here in the "bonus" tracks. That hardly fits the definition of "definitive.
