Show 014: These Are Not My People (A Tribute To Joe South) – Playlist and Archived Stream

Listen Up! pays tribute to the late Joe South who passed away last week. He didn’t get much credit outside of the snobbiest rock snob circles, but the man wrote some classic tunes that became huge hits for other artists, like “Hush,” “Rose Garden,” “Down in the Boondocks,” and “Games People Play.” Hey even laid down some tasty guitar work on Aretha Franklin and Bob Dylan albums.

The songs of Joe South are passionate and righteous, empathetic and generous and those are under appreciated qualities these days. All the more reason to pay tribute to the songs and session work of Joe South (from South’s own fantastic recordings as well as a few covers of his songs).

Follow the Listen Up! Blog and/or “like” the show on Facebook . Both serve as an addendum and a means to interact with the program.
