Uncut - p.82

Product Description:

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.
