J.J. Cale's Birthday. 12/5/1938

The man is seventy and he's still rocking. Better than most half his age. To celebrate this great musician I have two different sets to share. The first being JJ Cale Left (c)over Jams. This album sounds amazing. It's all different unreleased versions of some very recognizable songs. If you are unfamiliar with his music, he's been covered by many big named artist. The second recording is from December 1971. This is a live recording Pacific High Recorders San Francisco, CA. It is an FM Broadcast that maybe old, but still sounds great. It's one of the earliest live recordings I have. It mostly consists of some good blues rocking instrumentals. Why this guy isn't more well known escapes me. I'm sure after listening to these recordings you'll ask yourself the same question.

Happy Birthday Mr. Cale. Thank you for all the great music.
