Naturally - J.J. Cale (g, voc); Ed Colis (harm); David Briggs (p, org); Bob Wilson (p); Weldon Myrick (g); Walter Haynes (dobro); Carl Radle, Norbert Putnam (b); Karl Himmel, Chuck Browning (dr). a.o. Often copied, but successfully? When it comes to J. J. Cale, this question could well be answered with an emphatic 'yes' were it not for the equally talented Johnny Cash, John Mayall and Deep Purple, who all contributed to the well earned recognition of Cale's genial songs. Even the smash hit "Cocaine" was writtem by Cale, although it is closely identified with Eric Clapton, Cales name fading into oblivion in comparison. The present recording gives one an idea of how one of the most covered composer's music originally sounded. Cale lends the mixture of styles blues, rockabilly and country his highly individual, understated and sucient art of song. He is frequently characterized as being 'laid back', likes to sing slightly off-beat, and is accompanied by a well-equipped band which creates an ultra-cool sound. Cale is particularly committed to giving his songs sophisticated instrumentation, he doesn't produce a new record for the market all too often, and is well-known for his dislike of stardeom. What better reasons to bring up from the annals this undercover artist's debut album, Polish it up and just enjoy the music. Recording: September 1970 at Moss Ross Studio, Nashville, by James Long and October 1970 / June 1971 at Bradley's Barn. Mt. Juliet (Tennessee, USA), by Joe Mills and Jim Williamson Production: Audie Ashworth.
