Somebody call for the doctor, I think I'm sick
Ain't had my medicine in over a week
My mind's fine but my body feels weak
Call the doctor, I think I'm sick

A shady lady took all my bread
Ravished my body, lord, and messed with my head
I don't know but I've had my fill
Call the doctor and tell him I'm ill

My money's gone and I've got no place to go
I don't believe I've ever felt so low
If you've got the time while you hang around
Call the doctor and tell him I'm down

To me  7 - Quite Likeable  (almost 8)
One of the first tunes I learned on the guitar - so many great memories - Vale Andrew MacLean, my teacher of all things cool on the guitar.

I came across JJ Cale thanks to a misunderstanding of a friend of mine.
Years ago he asked me a suggestion for the present for my own birthday. My answer was "a record of John Cale".
And I received my first record of JJ Cale....
By the way, it was "5".


so back in 1972 I'm thumbing through the albums at the record store and I see this funky racoon and see that it is on Leon Russell's label and I bought it without ever hearing it, turned out real real good

Well played
Classic album.
There was so much great music on friends' turntables at parties in the early seventies, a lot of it just melts into the blurry soundscape of those memories. I distinctly recall that racoon, though.
I hear Summertime (Big Brother cover) in this. I wonder if there's a common thread or if it's just in my mind...

That bass-line, that voice.

If you're gonna buy one JJ album, this is the one!
Lots of people played "Laid-back" music, but JJ was the master.
