Alligator Records

Profile:
Back in 1971, Bruce Iglauer, a 23-year-old blues fan, used his meagre savings to record and produce his favourite band, Hound Dog Taylor & The House Rockers.
Following his heart, he quit his day job with Delmark Records and began promoting Hound Dog Taylor and his new record company full time.

Over 30 years later, that company, Alligator Records, is home to some of the world’s premier blues and roots rock talent and is regarded by fans and the media alike as the top contemporary blues record label in the world.

First release: Hound Dog Taylor And The House Rockers (1971)
