Nighthawks - 1996 - Pain & Paradise

The Nighthawks — Autor renovcevic @ 06:17


In 1995, joined by newest member, Pete Kaneras, the band went back to work at Big Mo Studio in Kensington, MD—working again with the production talents of Steuart Smith. The result was the album “Pain & Paradise,” a smooth sounding yet powerful showcase for their blues/rock band skills that ranks among their best studio recordings.

During these sessions The Nighthawks crossed paths at the studio with D.C. area guitar legend Danny Gatton. They had played with him on double bills many times over the years, and Gatton—the super lead player that he was—ironically sat in on rhythm guitar with The Nighthawks a few times.
There was the hope that Danny would be able to record a track or two with the band on this album, Schedules were not cooperating and so the band thought they would just work with Danny on the next album. In hindsight, this turned out to be a missed opportunity - with Gatton’s tragic suicide. In tribute to Danny, The Nighthawks did not include any rockabilly song on the album and dedicated the album to Danny.

Nighthawks - 1976 - Open All Nite

The Nighthawks — Autor renovcevic @ 06:15



In 1975, the band went back into the studio to do their second album, this time a collection of all classic blues songs called “Open All Night.” They weren’t entirely happy with the initial results, so went back into the studio and re-did the album. It was released in early 1976 and was a bold move at the time disco was reigning supreme and blues was at an all time low. And they faced the challenge of doing this as a white boy blues band. The album featured a powerful mix of ensemble playing and received very favorable reviews. It also did several other important things for the band.

On record, the inclusion of the live cut of “Red Hot Mama” with Pinetop Perkins at the Cellar Door laid the groundwork for their “Jacks & Kings” albums to come. On the road, the album expanded their touring horizons—leading to regular gigs in Boston, New York and Atlanta. And in the overall music scene, the band was starting to lay the groundwork for other similar artists who would follow them in the early ‘80s—including the Fabulous Thunderbirds, Stevie Ray Vaughan and George Thorogood.
