Tony Joe White - Bad Mouthin', album review

Languid Blues

The most languorous blues I may have ever heard – not in that despair of the genre's gut feeling of emotional ennui and/or desperation, but the near indolence of delivery. There is the simplicity of strummed guitar and occasional lead, basic harmonica, and percussion just enough to set a pace where the most energy is displayed in its relative just-woken energy. Tony Joe White is swamped to the deep core of his signature vocal. Excellent.
