J. J. Cale: Really (Shelter)

Robot A. Hull, Creem, March 1973

J.J. CALE just loves to mumble. Like, if he were peeking over my shoulder right now, watching me write this, and I suddenly asked him if he's pleased with the results of his new album, well, he just might fumble his sandpaper hands thru that brush crop on his head and dribble an ant twitch like: "Yup." I mean, what else could he say??
