Born in 1954, I awakened to music in the very early days of the 1970’s. JJ Cale was a great influence as music was going through the growing pains of the metamorphosis in styles between the 50’s and the 60’s. The early 70’s created some of the most prolific and talented musicians I have ever experienced in my lifetime.
Every time I hear this song, I think of JJ Cale. RIP to one of my favorite musicians.
I found him just about the time I found Bonnie Raitt,, Bonnie and Delaney, Duane Allman Boz Scaggs, Ozark Mountain Daredevils, and the rest of them.
Songs written by Cale that have been covered by other musicians include “After Midnight” and “Cocaine” by Eric Clapton,
“Cajun Moon” by Randy Crawford,,
“Clyde” and by Waylon Jennings, ,
“Magnolia” by Jai and Poco,, but I prefer JJ Cale’s version myself
