One tune makes the whole album with while
on April 1, 2012
I bought the original vinyl album back in the days when I was a freelance rock and roll writer. I am not quite sure how I ran across Taj Mahal probably heard something on the radio but decided to check out the album. There is one track on this album (yes it is also on Greatest Hits but this is the One) and it is called "Ain't Gwine to whistle Dixie any more". It starts with a bold brave whistle, a strut and ends the same way strutting out. It has a John Simon piano solo that is to die for. For me this is the track that has got me through a lot of truly hard times - just the attitude of it.
When my significant other died in 2008 I chose that tune to be played at the fuheral. He was a basketball player and one person who heard it said she could just imagine him whistling that tune and bouncing the basketball.
Of course there are quite a few other tracks too on this album. And there are good tunes and good songs and good music played. But this one track makes the price of the whole album worth every cent.
Thank you for having it available Amazon!
