This title was a runner up in a past voting round and our new partnership with Qrates allows us to make this and other limited edition pre-order titles now available to pre-order. The Qrates pre-order link on this page will take you directly to the Qrates page to order and complete the transaction. The Qrates pre-order runs for 75 days and then will be manufactured based on demand in limited quantities. It typically takes around 8-10 weeks after a pre-order closes for QRATES to deliver a record. All of the production work will be handled at Record Industry in the Netherlands so fans can expect the high level of quality they have come to expect from other Run Out Groove titles.

Biography

Ronald Hawkins is an American/Canadian rockabilly artist whose career has spanned over 50 years in the recording business. He is considered highly influential in the establishment and evolution of rock music in Canada. Also known as “Rompin’ Ronnie,” “Mr. Dynamo,” and “The Hawk,” he was a key player in the 1960s rock scene in Toronto. He has recorded more than 25 albums and his hit songs include covers of Chuck Berry’s “Thirty Days,” Jessie Young’s “Mary Lou,” and other notable recordings such as “Who Do You Love?”, “Hey Bo Diddley,” and “Susie Q.” Hawkins played an important role in establishing premiere backing musicians via his band the Hawks. After his move to Canada in 1964, he picked up notable Canadian musicians Robbie Robertson, Rick Danko, Richard Manuel, Levon Helm and Garth Hudson, who would all go on to form their own act known as THE BAND. Bob Dylan was a long-time admirer of Hawkins and even cast him to play Dylan in the 1975 movie, “Renaldo and Clara.” The following year he was a featured performer at The Band’s Thanksgiving farewell concert, which was documented in the legendary 1978 rock n’ roll film, The Last Waltz.
