Another stellar entry in the Austin City Limits Concert series New West has been putting out...Tony Joe White live, caught on film here, adds a dimension of charisma not discernible on the basis of the records alone...worth the price of admission for the version of "Polk Salad Annie" a rocking and weirdly uplifting little dittie, if you haven't heard it. Pristine sound and visuals abound here, typical for the series....

As I mentioned in my review for a similar product in C.C. Music, "I've been waiting for this since 1980." Why? Well, the album from which this concert draws most of its material, "The Real Thang" (and that STILL hasn't been released on cd...are you listening anyone?)was released on the dreaded Casablanca label, home of (barf) disco. That being said (and, hopefully, ignored), the music is WAY beyond "great," "fantastic," etc; I mean, just dig the titles of the songs for a...hint: "Mamas Don't Let Your Cowboys Grow Up To Be Babies," "Swamp Rap," "Redneck Women," and the song that ENSURES TJW's place in Rock and Roll Heaven, "I Get Off On It." Tony Joe had a quality that was (and HAS been) lacking in either the "Rock" or "Country" genres: a sense of humor. If this is the episode of "Austin City Limits" that I think it is, when Tony Joe resurrects his chestnet, "Poke Salad Annie," he even observes that the "poke salad" mentioned serve(d) as a (ahem) smoking mixture, too. Even his "adult contemporary" material, "Rainy Night In Georgia" is performed. TJW, I'm very grateful that 25 years later, this is FINALLY being made available to a public who only knew you from "Poke Salad," or that brilliant stuff you did with Tina Turner. Hope you'll tour behind this, and I'll volunteer to play bass if you do!

Like his old friend Waylon Jennings, the unmistakable Tony Joe White is a true American original that dares to stand out from the crowd in a music world full of pop, rock, and country clones who usually get the radio airplay that he has been denied. The country-rock classic "Polk Salad Annie" might have been his only major hit, but White is a prolific songwriter responsible for classic songs by others such as "Rainy night in Georgia". Along with John Fogerty, Tony Joe is one of the pioneers of "swamp rock", but he is one of those rare performers who cannot be placed in one musical category. His sound is a unique mixture of blues, rock n' roll, and country that is simply "too good" for radio programmers to accept or understand.

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!

I purchased the DVD without knowing much about Tony Joe White and want to hear something different. The reason for the 3 isn't because it is necesarily bad, but more that his overall music is a little different than what I usually listened to. If you are familiar with him and like his music then you'll probably enjoy the dvd as there are some songs I enjoy and am glad to have it in my collection.

Nice music from the guy who performed "Polk Salad Annie". This is a trio, and I personally prefer a larger group, with horns and a B3, but the music was easy to listen to and well played. My girlfriend loves Tony Joe White, and she was very pleased with this DVD.

For all Tony Joe White followers and would be this is a must have.
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.

~ 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 DVD can be summed up by the title of one of his songs "I Came Here to Party."
~ Highly recommended.
