Wild Cat Unleashed !

"From the man who wrote and recorded "Susie Q" in 1957 comes the first new release in 30 years and its certainly been worth the wait. Dale Hawkins was one of many rock & roll/rockabilly acts strutting their stuff in the late 50's who earned the distinction of being the most recorded of all white artists on the Chess label. Dale toured mainly with black R&B artists at that time before taking up recording duties in the 60's with the likes of Bruce Channel, Five Americans and Nilsson. More recently, he was responsible for producing the recent CD for Kenny Brown, the former RL Burnside sideman. "Wild Cat Timer" jumps out of the speakers from the opening title cut and continues in a similar vein taking on board a mix of swamp, blues, country and of course rockabilly. The playing throughout is loud, loose and jumping. Buy it before Dale takes time out for another 30 years to record his next gem!"
Hawkins stayed away too long

"Where has this guy been for 30 years? Just when you think good rock is dead, along comes a CD like "Wildcat Tamer". This CD is simply great. From the title cut through "Born in Louisiana", "Promised Land" and his signature song "Susie-Q", Hawkins brings back the rock we grew up with. The cut "Hat Trick", somewhat reminiscient of Fogerty's "110 In The Shade", is worth the price of admission alone. This one was worth waiting for, but let's not wait another 30 years for the next one!"

"THIS NEW WILD TAMER CD FROM HAWKINS DELIVERS. ITS ABOUT AS GOOD AS ANYTHING TO COME OUT IN A WHILE AND EVEN BETTER WITH THE CREEDENCE OF HIS EARLIER HITS AND THE NICE GUITAR WORK ON THIS CD ALSO. IT'S STANDARD ISSUE AND BARE BONES ALL THE WAY JUST HOW I LIKE IT BUT WITH SLICK VOCALS AND SOLID MUSICIANSHIP THIS IS DEFINATELY THE WAY TO GO."
