Tony Joe White – Swamp Music: The Complete Monument Recordings [4 CD BoxSet] (2006)

Digitally remastered four CD set containing all three of White’s Monument Records albums in their entirety plus a slew of unreleased tracks, including ten 1969 Paris sessions and seven live performances from the Isle Of Wight. Recorded with such Muscle Shoals musicians as David Briggs, Norbert Putnam, and Jerry Carrigan, White’s first album, 1969’s Black And White, featured such originals as “Willie And Laura Mae Jones” and “Polk Salad Annie,” along with such covers as Jimmy Webb’s “Wichita Lineman.” Released later that year, White’s second album, …Continued, featured the same Muscle Shoals players, along with Mike Utley, Tommy McClure, and Sammy Creason. Tony Joe came out in 1970, revealing an absence of the horns that had been so dominant on the previous records, and anchored by White’s acoustic guitar. Following an electrifying performance at the legendary Isle Of Wight festival, White moved to Warner Bros.
