Let me hit you with one last Chicago blues freebie before I move on to new business.
Theodore Roosevelt “Hound Dog” Taylor liked to do it raucous. He called his band the Houserockers for a reason.
Taylor died in 1975, soon after emerging as a recording artist for Alligator Records, a startup Chicago blues label.
Alligator is still going strong... and it is keeping Hound Dog’s music alive. In 2004 the label put out “Release the Hound,” an album of rarities, leftovers and live tracks.
