Album Review

Tony Joe's first U.S. release since 1983 finds the swamp-rocker in rare form. Produced by Roger Davies — Tina Turner's manager/producer, and the one responsible for her '80s breakthrough — this is the most cohesive album he's made since his early Monument LPs with Billy Swan. Tony Joe is kept tightly focused with a small combo (Hammond organ, bass, drums), and the rest of the space in the mix is occupied by the star's funky guitar, harmonica, and breathy vocals, recorded so close he sounds like he's two inches from the listener's face. It also helps that Tony Joe's songwriting skills have only sharpened over the years; the disc is simply loaded with great songs, including "Crack the Window Baby," "Gumbo John," "I Want My Fleetwood Back," and the moody "Cold Fingers," "I Believe I've Lost My Way," and "Across From Midnight." One of his very best, and as highly recommended as they come.

Customer Reviews

Great song "Selena"

I'm am one of Selena's biggest fans, and I have to say, it is AWESOME that he made this song about her. It's great.

One Hot July

Tony Joe's better than ever featuring a consistently great album. I Believe I've Lost My Way is one of the most emotionally evocative songs I've ever heard, along with The Band's: It Makes No Difference.

one hot july

this is just the greatest album. Thank the heavens he started recording again..... If you've ever been sitting by yourself , listening to the cosmos and wondering about life, the universe and everything - these are the songs to do it to! And for anyone who knows what it's like to feel "alone" in this world - put on "Across From Midnight" on replay.......... noone's ever alone listening to that. What a fantastic musician - he can make any instrument "wail", but it's Tony Joe's own soul that comes though here - not just his heavenly guitar and harmonica. I just wish I could hear him 'live' one day, maybe down in Swamp Rock Country...... Thanks, Tony Joe, for making life better than ok! I ony just discovered you a short while ago - where have I been all these years? Such wasted years without knowing your music! So sorry/ So- but - please keep on groovin' babe. You're the best! Pen
