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

4.0 out of 5 stars Tony Joe IS Swamp Rock music! January 19, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is one of Tony Joe's better albums. From the slow soulful title cut to the rocker Even Trolls Love Rock & Roll (one of TJWs best IMO). My personal favorite is The Gospel Singer. His big hits from this one are I've Got a Thing About You Baby and If I Ever Saw a Good Thing. If you are going to buy some TJW music, my recommendations are this album and One Hot July which I consider to be his alltime best.

5.0 out of 5 stars TJW's best album September 17, 2006
By Guy E.
Format:Audio CD
The Train I'm On is that truly rare animal; a PERFECT album. I think if you put 100 TJW fans in a room and had each one pick their favorite song from this album each of the twelve songs would be mentioned at least once.

There's a great deal of stylistic variety at work in the songs, but the quality is always there. There are more acoustic guitars than electric and there's not a note out of place in any of the playing or the deft arrangements.

The Train I'm On is a stone classic. I cannot recommend this album highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe his best work July 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I ve been listening to Tony Joe White for years. Nothing he does in less than great. But I think if I had to throw all my TJW albums out but one, this is the one I would keep. Every song on this CD is excellent.

4.0 out of 5 stars The One Who'll Stand Beside You October 4, 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a welcome re-release of Tony Joe White's 1972 album "The Train I'm On." The opener "I've Got a Thing About You Baby" bounces joyfully with the anticipation of a new romance. "If I Ever Saw a Good Thing" boogies with zest, "They say that one time in your life you find the one who'll stand beside you no matter where you'll go." "Beouf River Road" has lively percussion including a Jew's harp that throbs like a swamp frog. Last year, Anne McCue's version of "As the Crow Flies" from her album Koala Motel was my #2 favorite song of the entire year. Here, Tony Joe White's original is acoustic, but has the urgency that McCue so successfully inhabits on her electrified version. White covers and Eddie Hinton/Donnie Fritts' song, "300 Pounds of Hongry," with some stinging electric lead sizzle. On "The Migrant" White's hushed vocals ache about a migrant worker looking for a job. "In the town of Tipton, Georgia on a hot & dusty day, you could see the heat coming off the ground; Up the street a man came running, stumbling on his way & he shouted that the gospel singer was coming to our town," White sings on the lovely ballad "The Gospel Singer." "The Train I'm On" was prime Tony Joe White and wears well three and a half decades after its initial release. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Far Beyond Poke Salad February 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD
It is a shame that to the rank-and-file music fan
Tony Joe White is "only" Poke Salad Annie. This album
shows the real man and the real genius behind a
gifted Southern artist.

"The Train I'm On" is not just a collection
of songs---it is the story of a way of life.
My roommates and I had this album in college
at LSU and,having grown up in rural south louisiana,
this album was like a touch of home with us every day.
