J.J. Cale: Rewind: The Unreleased Recordings is a trove of previously unreleased songs recorded by American music icon J.J. Cale during his early and most influential years. Featuring vintage tracks from Cale’s legendary tenures at Shelter Records and Mercury Records, Rewind is a remarkable collection that exemplifies J.J. Cale’s distinctive, legendary style: laid-back guitar and almost whispered vocals with influences of rock ’n’ roll, country, blues and jazz.

Not only are Rewind’s eight Cale-penned songs a time capsule of musical treasures, he also personally selected several covers to include. It’s extremely rare for Cale to record another songwriter’s material, making these songs particularly extraordinary. He puts his personal spin on Eric Clapton’s Golden Ring, Leon Russell’s My Cricket, Waylon Jennings’ Waymore’s Blues and Randy Newman’s Rollin’.

Credited with originating the so-called “Tulsa Sound,” J.J. Cale’s style and songs have made a major impact on American music, influencing artists spanning genres and generations. Cale’s songs and style have achieved a mainstream profile thanks to diverse artists covering his songs: Johnny Cash, Eric Clapton (his hits After Midnight and Cocaine), Santana, Jerry Garcia, The Band, Bryan Ferry, Lynyrd Skynyrd (their hit Call Me the Breeze) and Waylon Jennings. Both Eric Clapton and Dire Straits’ Mark Knopfler both attribute much of their sound to Cale’s influence.
