Synopsis

Album Description
2008 reissue of the debut album from the singer/songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, which contains four bona-fide hit singles including 'Spiders And Snakes', 'My Girl Bill' and 'Wildwood Weed'. Jim Stafford performed during the '60s with a local Florida band that also included noted singer/songwriter Lobo and Rock legend-to-be Gram Parsons. Following this Lobo was to co-produce most of Jim's big hits, including his debut 'Swamp Witch' and 'Spiders and Snakes' Both were included on Stafford's eponymous LP, a release in 1974 on MGM Records. He can play a mean guitar but it's the catchy tunes and witty lyrics he writes that win the day. He was married to a first lady of country , Bobbie Gentry, at the time and moved in those circles himself, but there are a range of styles on this LP which Stafford attacks with panache, including pastiche Blues, real down home Tony Joe White style Swamp Rock and wistful Country Folk. Retro.

Great CD

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Excellent Vinyl LP, only makes sense to convert it to CD. Wildwood Weed, Mr. Bojangles, Spiders and Snakes are great songs IMO."
