J.J. Cale - Ebbet's Field 1975 CD


Previously unreleased broadcast of JJ Cale's Ebbets Field 1975 performance.

J.J. Cale is probably best remembered by a lot of people as the man who wrote two of the biggest anthems of the 1970s - 'Cocaine' and 'After Midnight' - both popularised by Eric Clapton, but both written by the immortal Mr. Cale. On his own he was an incredible talent - inventing the Tulsa Sound, a loose mash-up of Country, Rockabilly, Blues and Jazz rolled into one.

The first nine tracks on this CD come from a remarkable live performance J.J. gave at the Ebbets Field club in Denver, Colorado; an intimate venue which more than once attracted the attention of local fire marshals when over 250 revelers were packed onto its modest dance floor. The year was 1975 and the month February, and before Cale arrived, local FM station KCUV FM 102.3 had set up their mobile studio in order to transmit the whole affair over the airwaves.

Sadly only the eight songs contained herein were broadcast that night and so we are unable to provide the complete show, however at least four absolute Cale classics were included and these rub shoulders with two lesser known but equally brilliant J.J. numbers, along with a rousing version of Muddy Waters' 'Got My Mojo Workin'. To complete this CD a stack of bonus tracks are included, and these rare cuts come from the very genesis of J.J.'s body of recorded work.
