Tony Joe White "The Swamp Fox" was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist best known for his 1969 hit song "Polk Salad Annie" (also recorded by Elvis, Tom Jones and Dusty Springfield) and for "Rainy Night in Georgia" which he wrote but was originally made popular by Brook Benton in 1970. He grew up on a cotton farm in Louisiana, performing music at school dances and, after graduating high school, in night clubs in Texas and Louisiana. In 1967 White signed with Monument Records and released four singles between 1967-1970. "Polk Salad Annie" had been released for nine months before it finally entered the U.S. charts in July 1969, eventually reaching No. 8.

Tony Joe White's Swamp Music: Monument Rarities is Run Out Groove's 29th title. In 2006 Rhino released a 3CD set called Swamp Music: The Complete Monument Recordings which is now long out of print and elusive. Run Out Groove curated all the alternate takes, demos and rarities from that collection into a 3LP set featuring new artwork with all tracks making their debut on vinyl. This set will be pressed on 180-gram vinyl and come in a deluxe tri-fold sleeve. After the preorder closes, no more orders will be taken and Run Out Groove will manufacture only one pressing based on the orders received.

White toured with Steppenwolf, Anne Murray, Sly & The Family Stone, Creedence Clearwater Revival and other major rock acts of the 1970s. He made a comeback in the 1990s, producing, performing and writing songs on Tina Turner's Foreign Affairs album, including the title song and the hit single "Steamy Windows." As a result, Tony became managed by Roger Davies, Turner's manager of the time, and was signed to Polydor. 1991's Closer to the Truth studio album was a commercial success and helped put White back in the spotlight. Subsequent studio albums were released and in 2014, he appeared on the Late Show with David Letterman alongside the Foo Fighters to perform "Polk Salad Annie." White died of a heart attack on October 24, 2018 at the age of 75.
