Lovely compilation !
Does anyone know where this track called durango comes from?
It sounds like a "steely dan-do it again" retake.
I can't find anything about it.
Even if you know some good interview or documentaries about the man I'll be really happy that you share it.

Worth it for the brilliant music and the wonderful essay by Colin Escott.

Trying to find people J.J. Cale has not influenced would be much easier then trying to name those he has. J.J. Cale shuns the spotlight and seems to have made a concerted effort to remain a cult figure for more the forty years. His music may best be described as the “Tulsa Sound” ... which is a mix of Country, Blues, and Rockabilly. He’s been working on variations of this theme since day one, he manages to pick up and add something fresh with each outing.

His music is very warm, like a summer night with the sounds of crickets and fireflies filling the air. His groove is infectious to say the least, very casual and easy to dig. You will find nothing pretentious or overbearing, just some of the smoothest, cleanest, thoughtful, toe tapping music you will ever hear.

This is THE album to get by Mr. Cale, you don’t need another [except for ‘Naturally’ which is a historical piece everyone should have, especially on vinyl], everything you want is right here, and what an amazing job they did when releasing these two discs ... if anything, they gave us too much material, but that’s never a bad decision now is it. Nothing seems to have been lost in processing this music of compact disc, great lengths were gone to to preserve the integrity of J.J. Cale’s music, sound, and attitude. There are a couple of live tracks that feel really wonderful and fit with this release without seeming like filler.

I remember speaking with him in a hot bar in Kentucky. I didn’t even know he was JJ Cale, he just had some great stories to tell and I was willing to listen. He took his leave by saying that he had to get himself to work, which consisted of walking up on stage, playing some solo material and then being joined by his band. The show was hot, the air was hotter, I was sweating, but I tell you truly ... when the show was over, as the place was closing down and I was walking to my car, JJ walked over, shook my hand, thanked me for the words and said, ‘You be safe now.’

I was returning to Vietnam …
