This show is such a classic that it was recorded in December 1980, even before the signature Austin skyline was introduced as the Austin City Limits backdrop in 1981. Even then nobody quite knew what to call the music of Tony Joe White- blues, country or "Stompin' swamp music," which probably describes it best. Growing up in Goodwill, Louisiana probably had a lot to do with it. Sure, he had a #1 hit with "Polk Salad Annie," and he's had over 150 of his songs covered by artists ranging from Elvis to Ray Charles, but nobody does Tony Joe better than Tony Joe himself.
