Torrent description

Omar & The Howlers - I Told You So (1984)
Year: 1984
Label: Austin Records
Bitrate: mp3 320 kbps

The European blues fans all adore Austin, TX-based guitarist and singer/songwriter Omar Kent Dykes. That's because he fits the stereotypical image many of them have of the American musician: he's tall, wears cowboy boots and has a deep voice with a Southern accent. However, Dykes does not carry a gun, and though he looks rough and tough, he's actually an incredibly peaceful and intelligent musician, and a veteran at working a crowd in a blues club or a festival. While Dykes still has a sizeable American audience owing to his albums for Columbia Records, he still spends a good portion of his touring year at festivals and clubs around Europe. Omar Kent Dykes was born in 1950, in McComb, MS, the same town from which Bo Diddley hails. He first set foot into neighborhood juke joints at age 12 and after he'd been playing guitar for a while, he went back into the juke joint. After graduating from high school, Dykes lived in Hattiesburg and Jackson, MS, for a few years before relocating to Austin in 1976. He'd heard the blues scene in Texas was heating up. At that time, Stevie Ray Vaughan was still playing with Paul Ray & the Cobras. By the early '80s, Omar & the Howlers had gained a solid reputation for their invigorating live shows. They also released two albums on independent labels, Big Leg Beat ( 1980 ), followed four years later by I Told You So. Among white blues musicians, Dykes is truly one of a kind, a fact Columbia Records recognized in the mid-'80s when they signed Omar & the Howlers. Unfortunately, it was a fleeting relationship at best. After releasing Hard Times in the Land of Plenty ( 1987 ) and Wall of Pride ( 1988 ) the band was dropped when the company was bought by Sony. While it was inconvenient, it didn't stop Dykes. His post-1990 output has been nothing short of extraordinary. Starting in 1991, Omar & the Howlers recorded three discs for Rounder/Bullseye Blues: Live at Paradiso ( 1991 ), followed by Blues Bag and Courts of Lulu ( both in 1992 ). In 1995, they switched to the Austin, TX-based Watermelon Records and released Muddy Springs Road ( 1995 ), World Wide Open ( 1996 ), and Southern Style ( 1997 ). After 15 years of dealing with record contracts, Dykes needed a break from being tied down to one particular label for any length of time. Since then, he and the Howlers have released excellent discs on Discovery ( Monkey Land ) ( 1997 ) Black Top ( Swing Land ) ( 1999 ), Blind Pig ( Big Delta ) ( 2002 ), and Ruf Records ( Boogie Man ) ( 2004 ). A live set recorded in Germany, Bamboozled, appeared from Ruf Records in 2006. ~ Richard Skelly & Al Campbell, All Music Guide

I Told You So is one of the finest records Omar & the Howlers ever released, filled with roaring, impassioned performances and a sharp set of material.

Personnel:
Omar - guitar;
Gene Brandon - drums;
Bruce Jones - bass
