J.J. Cale's signature laid back, bluesy style of Country Rock has distinguished him from contemporary early '70s singers. His unique sound shows on his third album Okie (1974), where he merges these influences with Gospel.

His influence on other artists lead to multiple cover versions of "Got The Same Old Blues" with Freddie King, Eric Clapton, Captain Beefheart, Bobby Bland, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Bryan Ferry all tipping their hats to JJ. Further excellent tracks include "Rock And Roll Records", "Okie", "Everlovin' Woman" and of course "Cajun Moon".
