Blues-Based Album On White Vinyl LP!
Classic Covers + Never-Before-Released Originals!
Tony Joe White's music is as primal as a lizard's backbone. It echoes from
the magnolia groves and bayous of his Louisiana childhood, and looms into the
present every time he unleashes the molasses and tanned-leather combination of
his guitar and voice.
Bad Mouthin' marks a notable shift in Tony Joe White's musical progression.
Known widely as a swamp rock legend, Tony Joe breaks the mold on his newest
record which features classic blues covers from the likes of Lightnin' Hopkins,
Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, and more, along with tracks self-written, but
never before released. Tony Joe's delicate guitar work and patient approach to
recording, combined with his lifelong admiration for legendary blues musicians
and songwriters, make this release a poignant moment in Tony Joe's history, and
hints at the creative avenues he has yet to explore.
"When and where I grew up, blues was just about the only music I heard and
loved," recalls White. "I thought it was time to make a blues album that
sounds the way I always loved the music."
White took an unconventional approach to recording the album. The tracks were
recorded using his own gear in an old barn on his property. Setting up a studio
in two former horse stalls, Bad Mouthin' was recorded with just his 1965 Fender
Stratocaster, and produced by his son Jody White. The anticipated release of the
album comes over 50 years after the original creation of some of the tracks
featured on the album.
"If you want to visit The Swamp and hear the blues of tough, no-nonsense,
real people, Tony Joe White's Bad Mouthin' will take you there." -
