Tony Joe White debuted in 1968 with his single “Polk Salad Annie,” and while he’s mostly flown under the radar, he has continued to make music for the nearly fifty years since that debut, releasing some two dozen albums across a host of labels.

His latest, Rain Crow, is another solid outing that blends elements of blues, swamp rock, country,and straight ahead rock and roll. His guitar work is still masterful, although perhaps a little understated on this record. His voice has weathered well, some vocals hover low in the mix like a JJ Cale record. The rhythm section is solid and the production and mix sounds great.


  1. I like Joe Tony Black better, but this guy sounds pretty good, even if he does look way too much like an Indiana Jones fanboy.

    I just recommended Charlie Faye & The Fayettes to Nappy. I was listening to them last night on Spotify, and my little Bro will totally dig 'em. '60s Pop Groups are really his bread & butter.

    1. I love what they (Fayettes) did with that sound-I still play it a lot at work.
