Laying Low: The Elusive J.J. Cale Releases Possibly His Final Opus
Geoffrey Himes, Baltimore City Paper, 25 February 2009
THE POPULAR MYTH about the Velvet Underground is that the band never sold many records, but everyone who bought one started a band. As exaggerations go, that's not too far from the truth. Pete Seeger once told me that Woody Guthrie hardly sold any records while he was alive, and yet today he's better known than someone like Peter Frampton, who sold millions. And that's no exaggeration at all.
