35 X 35 is not just another best-of compilation. Alligator founder and president Bruce Iglauer and staff chose to spotlight songs from the Alligator debut release from each featured artist. From "She's Gone" (the very first track on the very first Alligator album, 1971's Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers) to the legendary Mavis Staples' chilling "A Dying Man's Plea," 35 X 35 is effectively a chronological history of Alligator, a story told in music highlighting every style of blues and roots music the company has released.

Eric Lindell is a natural. With impressive guitar chops, a worn, smoldering voice and a rocking rhythmic sensibility, his jam-friendly style converts blues purists and dyed in the wool R&B fans as well as the tattooed and pierced crowd. His voice recalls Stax and Motown-era soul, with a laid back, hipster charisma. Eric Lindell is poised for a breakout. He has turned heads everywhere he’s gone, almost instantly becoming the talk of the town wherever his musical journey has taken him.

This collector's edition contains 35 remastered studio tracks by Bobby Charles, consisting of all the sensational singles (both A- & B-sides) he made for the Chess and Imperial labels between 1955 and 1961. Several hard-to-find numbers from the same period have also been included here. These magnificent songs are among the finest examples of the genre. Some of the material here isn't available on other collections, nor have these recordings ever been previously compiled together on one CD. This is an essential set for devotees of southern rhythm & blues. /Excerpt from the liner notes.

Features SHM-CD format and the latest 24bit 192kHz remastering. Alligator Bogaloo is one example of Lou Donaldson's successful combinations of hard bop and soul-jazz. Of the six tunes, three are Donaldson originals, including the title hit. The excellent band, consisting of Melvin Lastin, Sr. on cornet, George Benson on guitar, Lonnie Smith on organ, and Leo Morris on drums, mixes laid-back vamps beneath driving hard bop charts. As the '60s turned into the '70s, Donaldson began shaving off hard bop invention for a more radio-friendly and 45 rpm length, leaving soulful – yet monotonous – vamping. At that point, Donaldson's material suffered from a lack of originality. That's not the case on Alligator Bogaloo.

The title track of Marcia Ball’s new album, The Tattooed Lady And The Alligator Man, is an irresistible tale of true love at the travelling carnival. It’s a story that nobody but Ball could spin, filled with vivid details, universal truths, and a rambunctious sense of fun and desire. With raucous horns punctuating Ball’s legendary piano pounding and emotional, melodic vocals, the song kicks off the CD of eleven originals and one glorious cover (Hank Ballard’s He’s The One). The release mixes Ball’s Gulf Coast blues, New Orleans R&B, swampy Louisiana ballads, and jumping, Tex-Mex flavored zydeco into a one-of-a-kind musical gumbo, a sound she has been perfecting over the course of her legendary career…

Paul Gilbert, who used to play guitar for pop-metallers Mr. Big and the shredding Racer X, ventures away from the pack with ALLIGATOR FARM. Gilbert's striking, virtuostic guitar work is a treat as he zooms from style to style–catchy pop melodies, thorny post-punk, tastes of metal, and classical music a la Mozart ("Whole Lotta Sonata") are all heard here. The cherry on the sundae is his unexpected reworking of the Spice Girls's "2 Become One."…
