Tupelo Honey Playlist 10/18/11

Concept album? I guess that's what you'd call the new album from Chip Taylor and his band. The idea was to celebrate the people who influenced rock n' roll but never got the limelight. Fair enough, but I don't understand how this album, Rock and Roll Joe, is supposed to work. Most of the songs on it are penned by Chip and most of the material, well, lets just say you'd have to be an insider to know how it relates to rock and roll. But, with that being said, the album is Chip Taylor and Kendel Carson gold. I played Sugar Sugaree tonight, a song that I guess was originally written for Janis Joplin. What a song and what an incredible arrangement. 

Check out Rock and Roll Joe, the concept falls flat but the music is spot on.
