• Dolores HAWKINS - Ooh Wee! – The Rare Singles

Dolores Hawkins had a smoky sound that was distinctly her own, and whether you are a long time fan, or just now discovering her, you're in for more than two hours of incomparable pop and jazz by one of the finest vocalists of the era.

Features two versions of 'Hambone' with Red Saunders, which was probably the biggest hit of her career and on the rare second version she repeatedly yells out an orgasmic 'Yeah!', which somehow got past the censors. She also cut four sides with the Four Lads, including the torchy 'Rocks In My Bed' They are all included in this superb new package along with her Gene Krupa recordings, some rare Krupa broadcasts, and 40 singles of her own, including two songs by Alan Jay Lerner and Burton Lane from the film 'The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.'

Most of this wonderful collection is on CD for the very first time, beautifully restored in this jam-packed double set.

Detailed liner notes complete what is an outstanding overview of Dolores Hawkins exceptional career.
