HIGHLIGHT ** IN DE KIJKER
TONY JOE WHITE
When “Polk Salad Annie” blared from transistor radio speakers in the summer of 1969, the first thought was of CCR, for Tony Joe White’s s swamp rock bore more than a passing resemblance to the sound John Fogerty whipped up on Bayou Country and Green River. But White was the real thing — he really was from the bayou country of Louisiana, while Fogerty’ss bayou country was conjured up in Berkeley, CA. Plus, White had a mellow baritone voice that sounded like it had been dredged up from the bottom of the Delta. Besides “Annie,” side one of this album includes several other White originals. The best of these are “Willie and Laura Mae Jones,” a song about race relations with an arrangement similar to “Ballad of Billie Joe,” and “Soul Francisco,” a short piece of funky fluff that had been a big hit in Europe in 1968. “Aspen, Colorado” presages the later “Rainy Night in Georgia,” a White composition popularized by Brook Benton. The second side consists of covers of contemporary hits, with the funky “Who’s Making Love” and “Scratch My Back” faring better than the slow stuff.

APHRODITE’S CHILD: END OF THE WORLD
“ (…) Let me explain: much of the stuff that the album delves into, such as the prominent use of keyboards (The Moody Blues and Procol Harum did the shit out of that), the exploration of Middle Eastern styles as seen in songs like “The Grass Is No Green” or “The Shepherd And The Moon” (The Beatles), and sappy ballads (maybe fucking everyone in the UK at that time), has been done before, but the defining factor that makes all those elements fresh is the group’s Greek origins. I wouldn’t be able to tell you how it changes anything aside from the vocals (as a side note, Demis Roussos sings a very good English) and perhaps the overall sound, but I’m pretty sure many of the more emotional numbers wouldn’t have worked at all if they were done by Brits.(…) .
Another thing I love about the album is how chaotic it sounds. Many of the songs are packed sonically, and even when there isn’t that much going on, it always seems like they’re playing in the middle of a huge mob, which, in a way, reflects well upon the situation they were in, with the protests in France and all that. That chaotic production also immediately makes itself known on the opening title track: “End Of The World” is one of the most moving psychedelic ballads of the 60’s, with Roussos’ vocals being carried over by the reverberating production, and the song climaxing in two huge emotional explosions only foreshadowed by a huge vocal “EYYIAEYYYYYYEEEEEEEEEEE” before you’re thrown into a symbolic “end of the world”. It gets me every time”
