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
This compilation of Tony Joe White's most successful recordings includes unforgetable standards like "Polk Salad Annie" and ballads like "Rainy Night In Georgia." His smooth, soulful baritone voice and straight-ahead musicianship defines a rewarding genre in rock music. Known as the "Swamp Fox", Tony Joe White's music incorporates a tasty touch of soul (without the heavy brass instrumentation usually associated with this form of music). The album has some 70's overtones, but they are tastefully done and scaled down to the basic 4-piece unit of lead, rhythm, bass, and drums. His themes deal mostly with snapshots of life on the bayou, as well as some enduring issues of social consciousness. His work has influenced many artists, and this is the album to add to your collection if you are interested in acquiring some of the most brilliant work of an influential and talented artist.

Polk Salad Annie has always been a favorite of mine, and now, to have a compilation of all of Tony Joe White's unique offerings is superb. His voice is unique, the instrumentation first class and the sound production is excellent.

Great, wonderful collection by swamp pop king Tony Joe White , includes all the obvious songs( i.e. Polk Salad Annie) but also many great lesser know ones ( i.e. Willie and Laura Mae Jones, etc.).

Love the way he sings Polk Salad Annie, nobody sings it like he does!! I enjoy the other songs too, like Rainy Night in Georgia, etc. Just discovered his music a couple months ago, he's terrific!
