Tony Joe White Tony Joe 180g Import LP
Third Studio Album Reissued on 180g Vinyl LP!
Tony Joe was the third studio album by Tony Joe White, released in 1970. It
contained the singles "High Sheriff of Calhoun Parrish" and "Save Your Sugar For
Me". The album was recorded at RCA Victor Studios, Nashville and Lyn-Lou
Studios, Memphis, and produced by Billy Swan.
A mixture of original recordings and covers, it featured
White's versions of "Hard To Handle" made popular by Otis Redding and "Boom
Boom" by John Lee Hooker.
"Tony Joe White's self-titled third album, Tony Joe White, finds the
self-proclaimed swamp fox tempering his bluesy swamp rockers with a handful of
introspective, soul-dripping ballads and introducing horn and string
arrangements for the first time...Many of the songs will remind the listener
just how turbulent the cultural climate of the late '60s and early '70s was in
the U.S. White's soulful southern-tinged spoken drawl introduces 'The Change'
(as in a "change is gonna come"), then a potent theme and oft-spoke clarion call
that, indeed, the times they were a changin'. 'Black Panther Swamps' and 'I Just
Walked Away' (the album's first single) are also successful at what they
attempt. Meanwhile, over on the more sentimental side, 'The Daddy' concerns
itself with the generation gap between father and son, and mentions the son
cutting his long hair ('a little respect will never hurt you')." - Bryan
