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.”

About Lloyd Kahn

Lloyd Kahn started building his own home in the early '60s and went on to publish books showing homeowners how they could build their own homes with their own hands. He got his start in publishing by working as the shelter editor of the Whole Earth Catalog with Stewart Brand in the late '60s. He has since authored six highly-graphic books on homemade building, all of which are interrelated. The books, "The Shelter Library Of Building Books," include Shelter, Shelter II (1978), Home Work (2004), Builders of the Pacific Coast (2008), Tiny Homes (2012), and Tiny Homes on the Move (2014). Lloyd operates from Northern California studio built of recycled lumber, set in the midst of a vegetable garden, and hooked into the world via five Mac computers. You can check out videos (one with over 450,000 views) on Lloyd by doing a search on YouTube:

  1. 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:
