4/1 MIND & PRIVATE JUNGLE – THE SLAMHOUND HUNTERS (courtesy of Satin Records)

The Slamhound Hunters were a group formed in the early 1980s by ex-Mink DeVille guitarist Louis X. Erlanger, Kim Field, Mark Dalton and Leslie Milton. An accomplished group of players, Kim Field wrote the book “Harmonica’s, Harps and Heavy Breathers”, The Slamhound Huntersone of the few definitive histories of the harmonica, Mark Dalton had played on the hit “In The Year 2525” and Leslie Milton had played on the Rivingtons’ “Papa Oom Mow Mow”, among others. The Hunters had a hit in the Seattle/Portland area with “Cadillac Walk” (Erlanger had played on Mink DeVille’s earlier recording of that tune) and that led to them sharing stages with Stevie Ray Vaughan, Robert Cray, Gregg Allman, The Righteous Brothers and other top names. They also toured Europe to support the French release of their work. Their two albums, 4/1 MIND and PRIVATE JUNGLE, have been re-released on all online music services as of March 15, 2018. Of historical note: The artwork on these recordings was done by band member Kim Field and Charlie Schmidt, the creator of YouTube sensation Keyboard Cat.
