Biography

“I’ve had unbelievable, beautiful freedom with the music for the last several years…” reflects Tony Joe White as a grainy dusk settles. Just entering his seventh decade, White spends his days off the road coaxing inspiration from his surroundings. Not one to write songs on command, they seem to find him—usually when he’s out on his property, a quiet couple ... Read more in Amazon's Tony Joe White Store

Format: Audio CD
If you know Steamy Windows by Tina Turner, Rainy Night In Georgia by Brook Benton, Polk Salad Annie by Elvis Presley or Willie And Laura Mae Jones by Dusty Springfield, then you know something about one side of Tony Joe White, the Swamp Fox from Louisiana. He wrote all of those and plenty more besides. Not only an accomplished songwriter, though, Tony Joe White is also recording artist and performer in his own right, singing and playing guitar on his own and other people's records and regularly touring.

Black And White was the album that followed his own 1969 US top ten hit Polk Salad Annie, the song that introduced swamp rock to the nation: funky horns, southern fried wah-wah guitar, alligator soul boogie and a voice as deep as his sideburns. There's a stack of that here, including an extra-fine version of Willie And Laura Mae Jones, as well as the earlier single Soul Francisco and four other original songs. The second side of the album consists of other people's material done the Tony Joe White way: Johnny Taylor's Who's Making Love, Slim Harpo's Scratch My Back, Roger Miller's Little Green Apples (a surprisingly effective and tender version), Glen Campbell's Wichita Lineman and Dusty Springfield's (or Dionne Warwick's) The Look Of Love.

The album was produced in Nashville by Billy Swan. As a bonus, both sides of his first single, from 1967, produced by Ray Stevens, are included. You can buy a Best Of compilation, but why deny yourself the opportunity to hear an album or two in full, as intended, in the process?

There is an excellent review here by Lozarithm which says most of what I was going to. I won't repeat it, but I will just add that, 45 years on, this still sounds great. It is fresh-sounding, heartfelt and superbly played, sung and produced. The recording quality is excellent (someone did a fantastic job in 1969), and I can still listen to this with real pleasure.

I went back to this with a little trepidation after hearing Tony Joe's excellent Hoodoo album Hoodoo in case this hadn't aged well. I'm very glad I did - it's still a fine album and warmly recommended.

I recently had the privilege of seeing Tony Joe live in London, he played material from a lifetime of albums including this, his first. For a debut album from 40 years ago it's great the playing is fluid and tasteful, giving a good idea of what was to come. If you like Southern Blues then this album is well worth a listen
