The two albums - gathered together here - were recorded in 1966 and 1967 for Prestige, and feature trio and quartet settings. Alongside Hawks on vocals and organ are the accomplished guitarists Maynard Parker and Ivan "Boogaloo Joe" Jones. They set up a pounding rhythmic organ and vocal groove shot through with soul. His versions of 'I Got A Woman' and 'Got My Mojo Working' are incendiary and originals such as 'O Baby' and 'Whip It On Me' thrilling. (Previously deleted:11/1/11. Original release date:8/6/98)
