Alligator Records To Release Taylor, Seals Deluxe Albums


Alligator’s Deluxe Edition series albums featuring Koko Taylor and Son
Seals will be released Jan. 22. The Deluxe Edition series are
compilation albums hand-selected by Alligator Records founder Bruce

Celebrating her fifth decade as a recording artist, Taylor has earned her reputation as one of the greatest voices the blues has ever produced. Taylor’s Deluxe Edition package ranges from previously unreleased tracks, to featuring Koko with friends like B.B. King, Buddy Guy, Pinetop Perkins and Mighty Joe Young.

Over the course of his eight Alligator albums, Seals has emerged as one of the world’s greatest bluesmen, and one of the genre’s most powerful live performers. Seal’s Deluxe Edition includes an unreleased track, “All By Myself,” taken from his first recording session in 1972.
