Album of the Day

Mr. Bojangles

Born Ronald Clyde Crosby, singer-songwriter Jerry Jeff Walker adopted his stage name a couple of years before making his solo debut for Atco in 1968. MR. BOJANGLES features ten fine songs highlighted by the Dylan-esque “The Ballad Of The Hulk” and the original version of the title track, a profile of a down-on-his luck New Orleans tap dancer that was most famously covered by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band. Reflective of years paying dues in folk clubs, Jerry Jeff 's appealing low-key approach is bolstered here by several talented session players including noted bluegrass picker David Bromberg. Simpler and more intimate than the troubadour's later progressive country work, the set remains a favorite with fans, and if you want to hear why, we'll ask MR. BOJANGLES to do the old soft shoe one more time...
