Omar & the Howlers Announce Special Record Release Show

01/11/2012
.
Ruf Records will release Omar & the Howlers' Essential Collection, a special 2-CD set on February 14 and have announced a special appearance that evening.

The twin-disc pack is comprised of one CD titled "The Best of," while the second one is called "Omar's Picks," which are songs that "represent a snapshot of influences and heroes throughout my career and are special to me for one reason or another," says Omar.

Omar & the Howlers will celebrate the release of the new album with a special in-store performance at Waterloo Records in Austin on February 14 at 5PM Central Time.

The 30 studio and live recordings on the Essential Collection were culled from albums originally released beginning in the early 1990s and includes selections from such albums as Courts of Lu Lu (named after a blues laundromat in his hometown of McComb, Mississippi), Muddy Springs Road, World Wide Open, Swing Land and his Blues Music Award nominated collaboration with Jimmie Vaughan, Jimmy Reed Highway. Also featured are such fan favorite Omar & the Howlers' classics as "Magic Man," "Border Girl," "Hard Times In the Land of Plenty," "Wall of Pride," "Mississippi Hoo Doo Man" and "Boogie Man," among many others.

"My career has been a long and rich journey from the time I began playing at 12 years old until the present day," says "Omar" Kent Dykes in the album's liner notes. "It has been a blast from 1962 until now. The Essential Omar & the Howlers includes songs that are considered my biggest hits combined with songs I believe to be some of my best work. The collection compiles my entire life's work in the music industry: writing, recording, touring and making the blues rock for over five decades."
