2020 Album Draft- Round 4 Pick 8- Cincinnati Babyhead selects- JJ Cale- Naturally.

Cincinnati Babyhead’s blog can be found at – https://cincinnatibabyhead.wordpress.com/

When Hans first approached me about this idea a few albums jumped into my head right away. J J Cale’s ‘Naturally’ was one of them. I’ve probably played it more than all my other records (might be a couple more up there with it). I dont know if there’s anyone one in the world that likes this album more than me. I know a few that like it just as much because he’s influenced so many musicians. I think you all know a lot of them. Here’s CB’s original take from way back. Man do I love this record. 

Gonna keep this short.

Cincinnati Babyhead couldn’t resist this music.  All sorts of styles, blues, jazz, rock, country… all done J.J. Cale style.  Great guitar and vocals.  Putting it all together.

Not a bad cut on the album.  All songs contribute to one of Babyhead’s all time favorite records.  ‘Magnolia’ is just beautiful.  ‘Don’t Go To Strangers’  just sounds cool.  ‘Crazy Mama’, ‘After Midnight’,  what can CB say.  Perfect.  ‘Call Me The Breeze’, ‘Bringing It Back’, ‘Clyde’…..every song has it’s own cool vibe.

  1. Very cool choice CB. JJ was so down to earth in his music. My introduction to him as a kid was Crazy Mama off of this album…then I heard him through other artists covering him. Great pick.

  2. JJ Cale’s name sounds familiar but that is about as far as my knowledge about him goes. The music is, as you say cool. He has that Tom Waits sound but a little more lively. The plan is to check out more of his stuff. Good choice to add seasoning to the music stew we have cooking in this draft 🙂

  3. Don’t know a lot about him or his music really other than he’s a friend and sometimes collaborator of Eric Clapton’s (and I guess wrote ‘After Midnight’ for him.). But cool that you like this record so much– just listening to ‘Don’t go to strangers’ now… nice late night feel to it. Classy looking raccoon too!

  4. J.J. Cale with his cool sound naturally is a great choice. Love it – I don’t know whether as much as you do, CB! 🙂

    And as much as I dig Mr. Slowhand’s take of “After Midnight,” nothing beats J.J. Cale’s no-sweat original!
