Oh Suzy-Q [Import]
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.
