Too young, I'll bet.I'm 62 and remember him like it was yesterday.
Lately I don't often think of myself as "too young", but I guess you are right...
He was a big influence on Rory Gallagher, "as the crow files" and he wrote Steamy Windows for Tina Turner. You should check out his album Tony Joe , great tracks on it.... Stud Spider being one that comes to mind
Because you weren't on planet Earth in 1969? I was only 11 in '69 and I remember it.
Not that far away from that C.C.R. thang.
Well yes, I wasn't - but why isn't he more famous? I know plenty of people who were dead before I was born... I really like that sound. CCR is a good reference point, but to me he sounds more like Slim Harpo and other "swamp blues" people off Excello label.
check out his track, "soul francisco"! really good white boy blues with a rockabilly twang.
The gators got yo granny!
Hi!Always LUVED this song! Peaked at # 8 on US charts (his only Top 10 Hit). He has 3 other Top 100 hits. Great Southern "story telling" songs. This is off his 1969 "Black & White" LP, and although this is the "highlight", rest of LP tells great stories too. Have the LP as MP3, and willing to share. Contact @ firstname.lastname@example.org
