Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Booker T. Jones will release Potato Hole, his first solo album in 20 years, on April 21st. While the MGs won't be on board for the disc, Booker T. will be joined by some prestigious guests, including Drive-By Truckers and fellow Rock Hall honoree Neil Young. The Truckers will serve as Booker's backup band, while Young will contribute guitar to nine of the album's 10 songs. The album is being hailed as a return to the raw funk of 1962 smash "Green Onions." Potato Hole was produced by T. and Rob Schapf and recorded last fall in California and Georgia. The organist and Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner will also hit the road in support of the LP, with a date at New Orleans' Jazz Fest with the Drive-By Truckers already scheduled.
