- Music On Vinyl
Black and White was the first album released by Tony Joe White. It contains the single "Polk Salad Annie", which was a staple of Elvis Presley's live sets in the 70s. It was recorded at RCA Victor Studios, Nashville and produced by Billy Swan. The album vividly recreates the Southern roots of White's childhood and his music reflects this earthy rural background. As a child he listened not only to local bluesmen and countrysingers but also to the Cajun music of Louisiana, that rare hybrid of traditional musical styles introduced by French settlers at the turn of the century.
