In 1995 swamp rock legend Tony Joe White and writer of evergreen "Polk Salad Annie" and many, many more great songs, released what I consider his best album, Lake Placid Blues. It's an album in which his voice comes to the fore, being as cool as it's possible to be. It's an album's worth of decidedly great tunes, and "Bayou Woman" is a prime example of how good a guy like him can be, of how utterly cool he can be. This is the sound of the South as is in the Southern United States, evoking a sense of place that few, if any, can muster. Eric Clapton or JJ Cale, you can eat your hearts out!
