Call Me The Breeze - Lynyrd Skynyrd

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Skynyrd was well known for their originality in music, yet they did cover a few songs by other artists. Hailing from 1974's 'Second Helping' album, the song was never released as a single, which is a shame, I feel. This one is by Mississippi blues guitarist J.J. Cale, famous among musicians, not so famous to the general public, yet oh, so talented. Gary Rossington came up with a guitar riff distinguishing it from the original release. Two years later, they'd cover another Cale tune, 'Same Old Blues' on the album 'Gimme Back My Bullets'. Cale's songs were quite good, Eric Clapton covered three of them: 'Cocaine', 'Travelin' Light', and 'After Midnight'.

Lagniappe: During Skynyrd's recording session for this song, none other than John Lennon dropped by the studio to say hello. Always wondered if he was a Skynyrd fan.
