J.J. Cale’s signature laid back, bluesy style of Country Rock has distinguished him from contemporary early ’70s singers. His unique sound shows on his third album Okie (1974), where he merges these influences with Gospel.
His influence on other artists lead to multiple cover versions of “Got The Same Old Blues” with Freddie King, Eric Clapton, Captain Beefheart, Bobby Bland, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bryan Ferry all tipping their hats to JJ. Further excellent tracks include “Rock And Roll Records”, “Okie”, “Everlovin’ Woman” and of course “Cajun Moon”.
The White Stripes self-titled debut album recorded in the Cass Corridor of Detroit in the cold winter of 1999. As described by Jack White “our most Detroit sounding album…I don’t think we’ve topped it.” Was originally released to mild reception at the time, but it directly resulted in the band’s first-ever mention in Rolling Stone magazine and got them a coveted spot opening for Pavement on their final tour. The allure and praise has only grown in the intervening two decades.
