|When You're Hot You're Hot/Ko-Ko-Joe CD (1997)
Hot A' Mighty/Lord, Mr. Ford CD music To the public at large, Jerry Reed may be best known as Burt Reynolds's wise-cracking sidekick in the SMOKEY & THE BANDIT movies, but country connoisseurs know Reed as the hotshot guitarist capable of giving Chet Atkins a run for his money, and the musical bon vivant behind such lighthearted '70s hits as "When You're Hot You're Hot" and "Lord Mr. Ford." This twofer puts a pair of Reed's best albums together on one disc, including the above-mentioned hits and others, spotlighting Reed's greasy, propulsive blend of country twang and R&B grooves and revealing him as a sort of good-time second cousin of country-soul hero Tony Joe White. "2 LP's On 1 CD" B/W "Ko-Ko-Joe" 2 LPs on 1 CD: WHEN YOU'RE HOT, YOU'RE HOT (1971)/KO-KO-JOE (1972). Personnel: Jerry Reed (vocals, guitar).
