For the music lover, a timely
transcription from original Canadian Mono
Pressing.

It's pretty hard to find in decent condition.

Fans of the Band (Bob Dylan's '66 back up
band) take note, this is the LP where they
fully came together under the tutelage of
Ronnie "the hawk" hawkins.

Ronnie is one of the funniest guys I've heard
speaking off the cuff.
He was also a supreme dancer in the late
50's early 60's.
The music on this LP is amazing, and it's a blend of country rock a billy soul funky southern inspired
grit and grease with a few nice ballads.



The renditions of Bo Diddley's music here are 
simply a lesson in where music was going
3 years before it was there.


Once you hear Robbie Robertson's screaming, slightly distorted guitar,
you will hear the shape of things to come. And that is no joke.
Curious to know if any of the UK guitarists were  hip to these
Hawkins LP's or even knew about Robertson.

On top of it all, is a solid album through and through, with nothing in there to gum
up the needle.

Well, since this is a digital transfer, you can listen to this and not wear out the grooves...
I assure you , it would happen if you only had one copy of this on LP.


This is the Band, you can see Robertson on the far right, Garth Hudson next to him.

 info from the band bio website :


According to Barney Hoskyns' book, CROSSING THE GREAT DIVIDE this is not, as the name suggests, a compilation of older songs, but a "collection of brand new material", some of it recorded in New York in the early spring of 1963, with Henry Glover at the controls.
The sessionography on the Ronnie Hawkins Website tells a different story. As one can see from the track list below, the album is a compilation of previously recorded material from 1961 thru 1963. Note that the Feb 2, 1962 tracks were produced by Leiber & Stoller, however the matrix numbers indicate that overdubs took place on May 7, 1963. The only other recording made during the May 1963 sessions with Henry Glover that was not included on The Best of Ronnie Hawkins, was "There's a Screw Loose" which was released on Roulette single 4502 in 1964 and appears on the 1978 UK album Rockin'.




Levon Helm, Rick Danko, & Robbie Robertson are on all the tracks, Garth Hudson is on the Doc Pomus/Mort Shuman song "Arkansas," Richard Manuel is on "Bo Diddley" and "Who Do You Love" The tracks with all 5 Band members are "Mojo Man," "High Blood Pressure," and "Boss Man." Since Henry Glover overdubbed the 2/2/62 tracks, it is possible that all 5 Band members also are on the track "Arkansas". The Hawkins sessionography only listed members at original session so there is no way to tell if Richard Manuel contributed overdubs to the track.







  

 



In 1963, the Hawks' playing was honed to perfection from countless gigs and rehearsals with Hawkins. On several of the tracks (especially the infections Bo Diddley tune "Who Do You Love") it becomes evident that the Hawks had started to develop their own way of playing together, and the departure from Hawkins was soon to come. One of the Band's major influences, King Curtis, can be heard playing sax on "Mojo Man".

For those interested in hearing the reissue on CD it was released in 1994
It sounds pretty good, the high end and mid range are pumped up
and bass is pretty tame but clear. It's also been maximized but
not with overkill.
This is what the cover looks like :
