5 is the fifth album by JJ Cale. Released in 1979, it was his first album for three years. Most of the tracks were recorded and mixed at The Lakehouse, Old Hickory, Tennessee. When the album was re-issued on CD, for unknown reasons "Katy Kool Lady" was replaced by a new song, though it was still listed as the former on the CD. This song was later included on the 2007 album Rewind: The Unreleased Recordings under the name of "Out of Style".[1][2][3][4][5]
