TROUBADOUR is J.J. Cale's fourth album, and was released in 1976. It was on this album that the song "Cocaine" (later a hit for Eric Clapton) made its first appearance. Over the course of his first few albums, Cale clearly delineated who he was as a writer, singer, and guitarist. TROUBADOR continues that careful delineation.
The set's second number, "Travelin' Light," is a perfect introduction to J.J. Cale's craft. It's powered by a groove at once relentless and laid back. There are surprises throughout, including "Ride Me High," which is a deceptively complicated song that undulates as it rolls along. The album's one cover is "I'm a Gypsy Man" by Sonny Curtis. As always, the cover fits Cale like a pair of comfortable old sneakers.
