Ronnie Dawson was an incomparable performer who mesmerized crowds with his unique brand of explosive Texabilly, Blues and Rock 'n' Roll music. Ronnie began his career as a teen sensation in late 1950s Dallas, Texas. Known as the 'Blonde Bomber', he had some success with early Rockabilly favorites like Action Packed and Rockin' Bones. Thanks to those early recordings, a renewed interest in Ronnie developed in England and Europe in the late 1980s. Thus began the most prolific years of his life. Ronnie Dawson was fresh, relevant and exciting, not an 'oldies' performer resting on his laurels. All throughout the 1990s and up to his untimely demise at age 64 in 2003, Ronnie Dawson continued to amaze with exciting new material and unforgettable performances. The recordings released here for the first time, capture what could surely be called the epitome of Ronnie Dawson during the most thriving and creative years of his life.
