Also, J.J. Cale could be described as either bluesy country or country blues
or some combo thereof, with a few smidgens of gospel. Maybe it'll suffice to
say the song's Leonard mentioned were from Eric's laid-back, bluesy
southwestern guys-inspired period, though Don Williams was definitely a big
country chart success and Cale isn't *exactly* Mr. Pure Blues.

"For God's sake let's have a little more freakish behavior -- not less."
  -- Tennessee Williams, 1945
