WEDNESDAY CLUB - JJ CALE - Mama Don't

MIDWEEK CRISIS, the pace of life is too fast, Come to WEDNESDAY CLUB we've got JJ today, he's stress free


JJ CALE - Mama Don't

If you are not familiar with JJ Cale, I bet you at least know a few of his songs, Cocaine and After Midnight were both covered by Eric Clapton.

When you think of 'laid back' music and if thats what you want JJ Cale is your man. You can just picture him sitting on his porch, a bud at hand and him strumming a way with friends and Clyde the dog by his side.

This track is from his 'Shades Album' and is rather upbeat for JJ it starts of slowly with one instrument, then another, then another, until by the end you have the full band and reefers belting it out in full flow...'there is no way back from that Mama.'

If you want to share the many joys of JJ Cale, I strongly recommend you get hold of  'Any way the wind blows' which is an anthology, you will not regret it, I give a guarantee for life with that.

Took me a while for me to get into 'JJ', a slow burner...

I think I will have to agree with the Anthology album, essential for any record collection. Seriously laid back Americana!

Blimey! This sounds seriously speed-freaky for J.J. Nice but I prefer him on the verge of sleep.

I'd expected to be able to listen to this in advance of going to bed from what I'd heard about J.J.Cale but I'm now having to find something else to do 'cos I'm wide awake again !! Must listen to more
