Call Me The Breeze (Radio Edit)
"Call Me the Breeze" is a song by J. J. Cale. It first appeared on his 1971 debut album, Naturally, as the opening track. The song consists of a 12-bar blues guitar shuffle over the backing of a primitive drum machine.
Like many Cale songs, "Call Me the Breeze" has been covered numerous times by an assortment of musicians, most notably Lynyrd Skynyrd (on their album Second Helping), Bobby Bare (on his album Bobby Bare - The Country Store Collection (1988)) and Johnny Cash (on his album Water from the Wells of Home). Many of the cover versions available are done as tributes to Lynyrd Skynyrd. For example, Les Claypool covers it on the album Under The Influence, A Jam Band Tribute to Lynyrd Skynyrd. This rocky version by P V Tanner is dedicated to all the lonesome lovers who move from state to state
