\”As well as being Taylor\’s debut album, Hound Dog Taylor and the HouseRockers was the first release on the Alligator label. The label was founded by Bruce Iglauer for the specific purpose of releasing an album of Taylor\’s music after he had been unable to persuade Bob Koester, then his boss at Delmark, to record Taylor.\”
