Tony Joe White - Continued (1969)

Tony Joe White is an American singer-songwriter and guitarist.

Tony Joe White's second album on Monument Records quickly followed his first, again produced by Billy Swan. It was another collection of songs in the same distinctive swampy roots-rock style, all originals this time, with backing from Tommy McClure (bass), Mike Utley (organ) and Sammy Creason (drums). One single from the album, "Roosevelt And Ira Lee", charted modestly at #44. Another song on the album has since become White's best-known composition - "Rainy Night In Georgia" was covered by Brook Benton in 1970, who took it into the Top 10. It has since become something of a standard, being covered by a myriad of different artists.

This is just a general comment as I just grabbed some Ramblin' Jack Elliott albums from you (to fill in a gap in my education)and wanted to say thanks for all the great music on your site. It's really an incredible resource (that great William Bell album for example) - does it make any differnce if I don't comment on individual albums?
Whatever, thanks a lot - Michael
