Sealed 1971 Original, Small CC. 4 1/2 Stars. “Tony Joe White's Self-Titled Third Album, Tony Joe White, Finds The Self-Proclaimed Swamp Fox Tempering His Bluesy Swamp Rockers With A Handful Of Introspective, Soul-Dripping Ballads And Introducing Horn And String Arrangements For The First Time. The Album — White's 1971 Debut For Warner Bros. — Was Recorded Over A Two-Week Period In December 1970. White Had Already Scored Big With 1969's "Polk Salad Annie" For Monument, And He Was Having Success As A Songwriter Too: "Rainy Night In Georgia" Was A Huge Hit For Brook Benton In 1970. Many Of The Songs Will Remind The Listener Just How Turbulent The Cultural Climate Of The Late '60s And Early '70s Was In The U.S. White's Soulful Southern-Tinged Spoken Drawl Introduces "The Change" (As In A "Change Is Gonna Come"), Then A Potent Theme And Oft-Spoke Clarion Call That, Indeed, The Times They Were A Changin'. "Black Panther Swamps" And "I Just Walked Away" (The Album's First Single) Are Also Successful At What They Attempt. Meanwhile, Over On The More Sentimental Side, "The Daddy" Concerns Itself With The Generation Gap Between Father And Son, And Mentions The Son Cutting His Long Hair ("A Little Respect Will Never Hurt You"). The Mawkish "Five Summers For Jimmy" Will Appeal To Fans Who Liked Bobby Goldsboro's "Honey." On A More Positive Note, "A Night In The Life Of A Swamp Fox" Was White's Somewhat-Frustrating Look At What Was Going On In His Life, Playing His Sole Hit For Fans But Wanting Something More Out Of His Career.” Bryan Thomas, All Music Guide.
