Album Review

This 1998 issue is an excellent set, because it is actually a complete reissue, without deviation, of the 1969 Tony Joe White album Black and White on Monument with a new cover and title. The tracks are in the same order and the sound is not appreciatively different from the current Black and White remastered edition in the box set of Monument reissues. The track list here is as impressive as it gets, and so are the personnel: David Briggs, Norbert Putnam, and of course Tony Joe on guitar, all produced by the great Billy Swan. The track list is quite impressive: along with the title, there are the original versions of "Willie and Laura Mae Jones," "Whompt Out on You," "Soul Francisco," and "Aspen Colorado," all of which are originals, fleshed out by stellar covers of "Little Green Apples," "The Look of Love," and "Wichita Lineman," to name but a few. It says "Licensed from Intermusic S.A." on the back and one assumes that it's official, but one can never be too sure. One way to be certain you are getting a licensed copy is to buy Black and White from Tony Joe's website, but if you see this lying in a bin somewhere cheap, snag it.
