Ballads of Ronnie Hawkins
The man who assembled The Band is known as a rock ’n’ roll wildman—but he also sang beautiful ballads throughout his career. Here are 30 that he cut for Roulette, Hawk, Cotillion, Monument and Quality. Elvis and John Lennon were outspoken admirers of this side of Ronnie; a 32-page booklet joins his takes on Odessa; Lonely Hours; One More Night; Honey Love; Lonesome Town; Down in the Alley; (Stuck in) Lodi; You Win Again; Your Cheating Heart, and more. Musicians include Levon Helm, Hank Garland, Duane Allman and Duck Dunn!
