Product Details
Performer Notes
  • Swamp rock ace Dale Hawkins recorded this gem in 1969 in three different studios in the three cities of the album's title. A tasty gumbo of soul, country, R&B, and vintage rock & roll, the album bears traces of the locales in which the music was birthed, as well as the general zeitgeist of the era, with its mellow feel and laid-back kitchen-sink approach. Boasting a stunning supporting cast--featuring Taj Mahal, Ry Cooder, and legendary Sun records sessions kingpin James Burton--L.A., MEMPHIS & TYLER, TEXAS is a rock-&-roll party of the highest order. A true lost gem, the album was reissued to an appreciative audience in 2007.
Professional Reviews
Uncut (p.82) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "Hawkins does Guy Clark-style country soul, pounding CCR swamp rock instrumentals, sleazy covers and thunderous, Zep-ish blues...."

Mojo (Publisher) (p.111) - 5 stars out of 5 -- "[A] snarly, lazy pushed-to-the-gills swamp-soul stunner."
