White shows how music only hits the soul when it’s rooted in some kind of authenticity. That’s why he’s the master of the swamp song: an ear-bending blend of R&B, gospel, soul and rock ’n’ roll. Noted producers on this set include Tom Dowd, Jerry Wexler, Billy Swan, and Peter Asher. The Best of Tony Joe White Tony Joe White. The years 1968 to 1973 were prolific and musically mind-blowing for singer/songwriter Tony Joe White. His music is filled with dirt-poor characters and themes that detail the South. There are alcoholic hillfolk ( Old Man Willis ), detached lawmen ( High Sheriff of Calhoun County ), wild pokeweed and mean alligators ( Polk Salad Annie, his massive hit), iterant hell drivers ( Backwoods Preacher Man ), futile racism ( Willie and Laura Mae Jones ), and nights spent circling the local Dairy Queen ( Saturday Night in Oak Grove, Louisiana ).

Tony Joe White (July 23, 1943 – October 24, 2018), nicknamed the Swamp Fox, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist, best known for his 1969 hit "Polk Salad Annie" and for "Rainy Night in Georgia", which he wrote but was first made popular by Brook Benton in 1970. He also wrote "Steamy Windows" and "Undercover Agent for the Blues", both hits for Tina Turner in 1989; those two songs came by way of Turner's producer at the time, Mark Knopfler, who was a friend of White
Tony Joe White came in on that wave with Polk Salad Annie, a curious song about a tough girl down in Louisiana. Call it early white rap. It's a style White would carry on, which probably led to some lean times as far as popularity, but he still has panache even today, releasing a new album a few years back with some fine duets with some modern women. At 20 tracks, this can get somewhat overkill, but it does demonstrate the man's prowess and song writing ability. It wasn't at a bad price, so was well worth exploring . Where has this man been? One of the best kept secrets in music! He should have received a lot more airplay than he did back in the day. You can hear the roots of where Credence Clearwater Revival got their inspiration.
