Product Description:

Unknown Contributor Role: Hawkshaw Hawkins.
Hawkshaw Hawkins' smooth and deep country voice first flowered during his 1946-1953 stay at the King label. With behemoths RCA and Columbia still in the future, Hawkins delivered some his biggest hits for the blues-centric, Cincinnati independent. This fine LP spotlights a few of them, including his signature tune, "Sunny Side of the Mountain," and "Slow Poke." Far from being the only highlights, though, these smashes are augmented by some of the best early honky tonk on wax. Reflecting the influence of Jimmie Rodgers and Ernest Tubb, Hawkins ranges freely from weepers ("If I Ever Get Rich Mom") to hillbilly boogie ("Rattlesnakin' Daddy") to country swing ("Somebody Lied"). A vintage set tailored made for the honky tonk faithful. ~ Stephen Cook
