In this Austin City Limits appearance from 1980, Tony Joe is backed by a bass player and drummer as he accompanies himself on guitar and harmonica. This simple, stripped down trio approach brings out his sound perfectly. Every song in this performance is a White original that showcases his totally unique, ultra-cool style. His manly, bluesy voice and funky, swampy guitar licks are on full display from the first song to the last. Along with his southern-fried classic "Polk Salad Annie", other highlights include "Mamas don't let your cowboys grow up to be babies", "Lustful Earl and the married woman", "I get off on it", "Even Trolls love Rock n' roll".
"SWAMP RAP" is my favorite performance in this entire show as Tony Joe delivers a fantastic and totally unique RAP song set to a funky, swampy groove that is one of the coolest, funkiest songs I've ever heard. This is rap music like you've never heard it before with a killer groove so addictive you will wear out the repeat button on your DVD player!Read more ›
I have listened to Tony Joe WHite for many years via the audio
only medium. To get to see him perform gives you a different
perpective on the ease and emotion that he puts into his music.
If you are a beginner in this music genre try: ONE HOT JULY and
start the journey.
~This DVD can be summed up by the title of one of his songs "I Came Here to Party."
~ Highly recommended.

3 piece band, a bunch of great songs and a truly original artist. Country, R&B, Soul, Cajun, Rock, it is all in there, but the music doesn't belong to any genre, which is probably... Read morePublished on November 3, 2010 by Confetti Heart
