When the BBC aired an evening of programs dedicated to the Southern Rock genre I thought they were inventing musical styles in order to re-hash archive clips from The Old Grey Whistle Test. I like to think I know my music but I'd never even heard of Tony Joe White or his Polk Salad Annie but they were new yet somehow familiar at the same time. This track caught my ear in a way no other track has done for quite a few years and after repeated listens its apparent familiarity perhaps lies in a number of other seemingly unrelated sources, from 'Mustang Sally'. popularised in the film 'The Commitments', through The Blues Brothers with even a hint of Jim Morrison in there. I thought there was bit of an Elvis thing going on in there too so came as no surprise to me learn the king recorded no less than five versions of it. Try googling it, you'll go through page after page of reference to Elvis before finding any mention of Tony Joe White. There's also a great version on youtube with Johnny Cash. Maybe I'm hanging out too often with too many Americanas, being force-fed a diet of country music, maybe I'm just mellowing in my old age or maybe I'm just becoming a little more open minded but I'm surprised and delighted by how much this fifty year old ditty got under my skin the way it did.
