Jerry Reed - When You're Hot, You're Hot_Amos Moses 7" - 1970

Yesterday Sept 2nd Jerry Reed died in Nashville at age 71 from complications with emphysema. You can read the particulars and some history over at CNN or just about any other major news source.

If you're a regular reader you will have read me going on about my love of Jerry Reed from time to time. I posted a few of his records since the inception of this blog back in January. The world will truly miss him, but at least we have his music to remember him by.

So in tribute to Jerry I thought I'd post another record from my stack of 45's from old Mr. Reed. This one's from 1970. "When You're Hot, You're Hot" is a great song. It starts off with that legendary "Son" from Jerry. If you know Jerry Reed's music at all you'll know that "son" that I'm talking about. No one sings it like him. This song has a fun chorus with some lighthearted back up singers. The song has also a healthy helping of funk in addition to the country factor. For that matter "Amos Moses" follows the same recipe. The bass line is super tasty on that B-side. Get's you're head a bobbin'. The song is about Amos Moses who as the lyric says was used by his father for alligator bate. How can you go wrong with a song like that.

Of course two songs don't quite seem fitting for a tribute so here again are some of the other Jerry songs from previous posts.
