Fantastic work from one of the coolest cats to ever cut a record – the amazing Tony Joe White – a southern singer with a rockish approach, but one that was equally drenched in funk and soul as well! Tony cut some key albums for Monument
Records at the end of the 60s and start of the 70s – every one of which is a classic – but he also worked hard in the studios to achieve his fantastically sharp sound, and left behind a lot of unreleased material that's every bit as great as his albums for Monument
too! This 3LP set is the first time that many of these cuts are issued on vinyl – alternate mixes and unreleased tracks that first saw the light of day on the now-deleted Tony Joe White box set – long-overdue in this funky format. Titles include "Ten More Miles To Louisiana", "Let The Party Roll On", "Boom Boom (long)", "I Protest", "A Man Can Only Stand Just So Much Pain", "Toil & Trouble (early version)", "It's Not What You Got It's How You Use It (alt take)", "Prison Song", "Tobacco Road/
Dead End Street", "Ballad of Hollis Brown", "Mississippi Delta", "Hey Jude", "I Can't Stand It", and "Gospel Singer".
