Hound Dog Taylor was a VERY unorthodox blues player and singer, who had this LP released in 1971 on Alligator records. The man ho founded Alligator, Bruce Igletour, was a big fan and supporter of Hound Dog's band and worked for another record company in LA. He tried without success to interest his company and others in Taylor's music and in the end, put his life savings into starting Alligator Records, a major blues recording company to this day.
Taylor's sound is unique, and will make you move around...it is NOT 1970's "Heavy" music. As Hound Dog Taylor said, "...we are just havin' fun with it."
This is the first Hound Dog Taylor and the Houserockers LP in 4 parts...
Theodore Roosevelt Hound Dog Taylor died of cancer in 1975. His music influenced a lot of bands in his day and since,although he is largely neglected now. He recorded several more albums still available on CD and several live performances were released as albums after his death.
He was a unique player, and his biography may be found on Wiki.
Enjoy, and happy thanksgiving!
added Live 15 performance, Ann Arbor, 1974...just found this.
