Demos, Alternates and Rare Tracks from the Long Out of Print Swamp Music: The Complete Monument Recordings CD Box Set Available on Vinyl for the First Time; 180g 3LP-Set with Updated Artwork and Deluxe Tri-Fold Jacket Packaging
An influential musician in the '60s and '70s swamp rock scene, the late Tony Joe White's music is as primal as a lizard's backbone. It echoes from the magnolia groves and bayous of his Louisiana childhood, and looms into the present every time the molasses and tanned-leather combination of his guitar and voice was unleashed. White himself said that the foundation of his music came "from hearing blues singers play guitar with maybe just a harmonica or stomping their feet for accompaniment." You may or may not be overly familiar with The Swamp Fox, but we all know his two most famous songs – "Polk Salad Annie" and "Rainy Night In Georgia."
ROG curated all the demos, alternates and rare tracks from his long out of print 2006 Swamp Music: The Complete Monument Recordings CD box set and created a new 3LP collection with updated artwork. A compilation of recordings made for the Monument label in the late 60's/early 70's, all of the tracks are making their debut on vinyl, including several previously unreleased. Pressed on triple 180g vinyl LP packaged in a deluxe tri-fold jacket.
