Today is TJW's 75th birthday. And there is news about a new album due to be released in September.


Hear Tony Joe White’s Gritty New Version of ‘Bad Mouthin”
Blues tune, which the swamp-rock legend first recorded in 1966, is the title track from his new album, due out September 28th

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Thanks, Rocker. Not a fan but that's no reason not to wish TJW many happy returns of the day. Smiley

This seems to be the tracklist:

1.Bad Mouthin'    
   
2.Baby Please Don't Go   
   
3.Cool Town Woman   
   
4.Boom Boom   
   
5.Big Boss Man   
   
6.Sundown Blues   
   
7.Rich Woman Blues   
   
8.Bad Dreams   
   
9.Awful Dreams   
   
10.Down the Dirt Road Blues   
   
11.Stockholm Blues   
   
12. Heartbreak Hotel



So it features a couple of re-recordings among others. Here are the original/earlier versions:

"Cool town woman": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u9mKGr-8e9o (from "Closer to the truth")

"Rich Woman Blues": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDzFG01RaaI (from "The Heroines") https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TBqRi1_gA_Y (from "The Beginning)

"Stockholm blues": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d1AOYeFUeuo (from 1970's "Tony Joe")

He also recorded a nearly 8 mins. version of John Lee Hooker's "Boom boom" on "Tony Joe": https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTvDXhqlhXU
