Product Description

Recorded live December 5, 1980 and features the classic 'Polk Salad Annie' along with 'Mama Don't Let Your Babies Grow Up Tp Be Cowboys'. New West. 2006.

Amazon.com

Few rockers wring more out of less, and cut across more musical categories in the process, than Tony Joe White. The bard of the Louisiana swampland makes it look so natural and sound so organic, telling stories with his wah-wah guitar over a spare, stripped-down rhythm section. Yet this 1980 live taping for the Austin City Limits series offers more than variations on a theme of "Polk Salad Annie" (his 1969 smash about a granny-chomping gator). As a writer, he shows an affinity for tender balladry on the soulful "Rainy Night in Georgia" (a chart-topper for Brook Benton) and "Billy," while cuts such as "Mama Don't Let Your Cowboys Grow Up to Be Babies," "Red Neck Women" (not to be confused with Gretchen Wilson), and "That's the Way a Cowboy Rocks and Rolls" would find him today classified as country. Though "Disco Blues" is pure boogie, "I Get Off on It" could pass as disco. And for those who can't get enough of "Polk Salad Annie," there's plenty more in that vein as well. --Don McLeese

Until the dreaded Casablanca chooses to release "The Real Thang," (TJW's "Let It Bleed," indeed, his very "Sgt. Pepper") buy - pick up on - LEAP for this CD. It has the same exact personnel (drummer Jeff Hale, who's still with him today, and bassist Steve "Lil' Stevie" Spears), and "Live" is comprised of all but one of the tracks from "Thang." "Mamas Don't Let Your Cowboys Grow Up To Be Babies," is the perfect response to the then-trendy "Outlaw-Cowboy" movement, and "I Get Off On It" (which really has to be heard to be believed...to wit: "I met a pretty thang in Los Angeles/But he was a man in women's clothes/I told him he was dressin' kinda dangerous/'cause how's a fool like me supposed t'know?/And I couldn't help but say/WHY you wanna dress that way?/An' he said 'I get Off On It...ain't no sweat off yo' nose, I jus' dig them women's clothes'" Oh, and BTW, "Get Off" is as an effective DISCO SUX song as is Ian Hunter's "We Gotta Get Out Of Here." (the ULTIMATE compliment) And, no, the song's not - necessarily- about Gretchen Wilson, but "Redneck Women," with its "Honey, I don't mean to push, but let's quit beatin' 'round the bush/Is it gonna be yo' place or mine," is TJW's perfecto-take on "We Got Tonight." Music like this comes along for one brief second, once in a lifetime; don't look like "The Real Thang" is ever going to be released, so "TJW Live On Austin City Limits" is definitely the next best thing. Go for it - and you'll be astounded at the thickness, the fullness of a Rock and Roll sound that only 3 musicians can create. 'course...it certainly helps if one of them is Tony Joe White, the only guitarist in history (aside from Eric Clapton) that can justify a dad-blamed "wah-wah pedal.")

I have been waiting years to see this. One, The Real Thang,(never on CD)has always been my favorite album. Yes I've read all the critics and their views on Tony Joe going disco, doesnt matter. On this DVD it is pure Tony Joe at his best, up close and personal. A true musical legend and a nice guy to boot. Buy it!

~ Tony Joe White was in fine form for this 1980 "Austin City Limits" performance. Backed by Jeff Hale on drums and Steve Spear on bass, this trio stomps out sixty minutes of swamp boogie fun. Lots of rockin' blues expertly delivered by an under-rated guitarist. Thirteen of the fourteen songs come from Tony Joe's prolific pen including classics such as "Polk Salad Annie", "Rainy Night in Georgia", and "Willie and Laura Mae Jones". His sense of humor comes through loud and clear in songs like "Even Trolls Love Rock `n Roll", "Mama Don't Let Your Cowboys Grow Up to Be Babies", "Disco Blues", and "300 Pounds of Hongry". This CD can be summed up by the title of one of his songs "I Came Here to Party."
~ Highly recommended.

Superior live recording, helped make Austin City Limits the legend that it is today
I'm not a big fan of live recordings but this one is over that top. Wonderful performance with top notch band
If you had to pick only one Tony Joe White for reference this would be the one to have

One night I had the old Polk Salad Annie song in my head so I looked it up and found a good live album with that and much more. I recognized a few of the other songs, but was surprised that I never really looked into his music before because he's really damn good. Kind of like Waylon....
