Why have I never heard of this guy? An Amazon reviewer said this about his 2010 album “Shine”:

“Great album by Tony Joe White. Real nice songs and guitar work with just enough swamp. This is a soulful album with a great feel. Beats me why Tony Joe isn’t more popular like J.J. Cale has become.”

    Lloyd–Tony Joe White performed 'Polk Salad Annie' on the Roy and HG show down here (in Australia) many years ago. Great song! This link may interest you: http://www.elvisconcerts.com/real/psa01.htm

    Check his song "Louisiana Rain". And he wrote "Rainy Night In Georgia" covered by many others…

    Lloyd- I second Kiwi's recommendation of "Rainy Night In Georgia" "What Does It Take" and "Thought I Knew You Well" are both incredible as well

    I saw Tony Joe White a couple years ago in Chicago at Schuba's (tiny room–great place to see a show). It was electrifying! What a powerful voice that man has. Too bad he was in and out like a bolt of lightning.

    I was introduced to his music via mix tape (ha!) with this gem:

    Here he sings "Polk Salad Annie" with the man himself on The Johnny Cash Show. They're having fun:
