|Tony Joe White - 'Polk Salad Annie' - next Delta Music Hall of Fame inductee|
Tony Joe White, best known for his 1969 hit, "Polk Salad Annie" will be inducted in the Delta Music Museum Hall of Fame on April 3, 2010.
"I am excited as can be," said Ferriday Mayor Glen McGlothin. "We have been trying to get him for the past six or seven years. He is definitely going to be a great addition to our museum."
McGlothin said Easy Eddie and the Party Rockers will back up White for a few songs at the museum induction, while White will also be singing on his own.
White was born on July 23, 1943, in Oak Grove.
Besides "Polk Salad Annie," White is known for "Rainy Night in Georgia" which he wrote but was firstly made popular by Brook Benton in 1970, and "Steamy Windows" - a hit for Tina Turner in 1989.
"Polk Salad Annie" was also recorded by Elvis Presley and Tom Jones.
Nicknamed "the Swamp Fox" in France, White is regarded as an original exponent of the sub-genre swamp rock.
His songs have been recorded by at least 60 major artists.
White's first album, 1969's Black and White, was recorded with Muscle Shoals musicians David Briggs, Norbert Putnam, and Jerry Carrigan, and featured "Willie and Laura Mae Jones" and "Polk Salad Annie", along with covers of Jimmy Webb's "Wichita Lineman".
Three more singles quickly followed, all minor hits, and White toured with Steppenwolf, Sly & the Family Stone, Creedence Clearwater Revival and other big rock acts of the 1970s, playing in France, Germany, Belgium, Sweden and England.
In late September 1973, White was recruited by record producer Huey Meaux to sit in on the legendary Memphis sessions that became Jerry Lee Lewis's landmark Southern Roots album. White produced Tina Turner's Foreign Affair album. Playing a variety of instruments on the album, he also wrote four songs, including the title song and the hit single "Steamy Windows."
