I downloaded this and I do appreciate it, but you didn't tag the mp3's, and you didn't include a jpg or a track listing or *anything* to indicate titles & artists! Could you please post something to indicate what the songs & artists are? Thank you so much!

I think you'll find a jpg of the back cover in one of folders after you've opened the rar. file.

Ah, okay, now I see it. Don't know why I missed it last night. Once again, thanks for a great album.

Rhod, the Alligator/Sonet Lp's are very easy to find so I won't be posting them here as I've got a backlog of LP's still waiting to be posted.
The blog from "Blue Eye" has posted the early tracks from Hound Dog some time ago so give him a visit.

This collection was evidently compiled by some fine connoisseur of the genre… It includes tracks on which any trace of slide guitar is conspicuously absent! "She's Too Much" features the superlative non-slide guitar work of Mighty Joe Young (except for the succinct four-bar intro by Littlejohn). "I Got What It Takes" by K. Taylor may include Nighthawk in its line-up, but gloriously lacks any slide guitar playing. "Someday" by Nighthawk is a great cut, but is equally devoid of any slide work, the lead being handled by Buddy Guy. Be that as it may this is a great album, if only it weren't for Koko Taylor's execrable expectorations.

Franck Goldwasser said...

By the way, "She Knows How To Love A Man" is a very fine example of Nighthawk's decidedly non-slide guitar work, which definitely deserves attention.
