Polk Salad Annie
This came along at about the same time as Tommy Neal’s Going To A Happening
and was often played back to back at the Blue Note
(in fact everything was played back to back at the Blue Note and The Wheel – no one had much time for a DJ’s ego in those days; so the DJ’s mostly kept fairly quiet apart from announcing a few artists and record titles).
‘Polk Salad Annie: the cops have got yer’ Granny!’ Tony Joe White is a white singer who sounded a lot like Elvis and was part Cherokee Indian. His songs have some excellent lyrics – Groupie Girl: ‘you’re gettin’ old before your time’.
