Classic Track of Day – Tony Joe White

1969 Monument SP-18144

Authentic true soul from Tony Joe White.  Born on the Bayou – and not in El Cerrito.  Often overlooked by the jetset as a reference point for No Depression: the feel, the soul, the truth- It’s all here:   Cosmic American Swamp Music. By all critical accounts, Tony Joe should be a household name – but instead he quietly rests in the pantheon of America’s rich musical history.  His catalog is a treasure trove of a soul that was hijacked by arena artists, (Creedence, Skynyrd, Clapton and more) As a songwriter and inspiration – he  should be identified with the greats (Cash, Waits, Parsons)  Thank you Wayne and Jefferson for setting me straight.
