Torn and Frayed Part 2

Hoyt Axton is an incredibly influential songwriter, who in his artistry from 1963 onward managed to seemlessly blend blues, country, folk etc. Remember that first time you heard Steppenwolf's "Pusher," and thought ... "damn, this is so killer." Well, it was Hoyt. From Three Dog Night to Waylon Jennings -- they all paid interpretive respect. Allmusic.com puts it best: "his gravelly baritone and wry, earthy songs projected an uncommon wit, warmth, and optimism, yielding a consistently engaging body of work extending across four decades." Joy To The World features a slew of oft-covered freak flag rock and Americana classics. Here's a highlight. Seek this out, ya'll. It's super good.
