Oh! Suzy-Q

Used Condition


Outstanding as new, Near Mint copy. Long out of print, this is a reissue in its original format. Dale Hawkins’ Susie-Q was one of the finest songs to emerge out of early rock’n’roll, a swamp-rock classic. Yet the artist himself remains relatively under-appreciated, as does his seminal debut album…


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.
