On Monday I started with Detroit’s Bob Seger’s rendition.
Bobby Bland got first strike with this song, but never did he do it like the Grateful Dead who got second strike in 1966. And certainly not what turned out to be the jam of a historical proportion with members of The Allman Brothers Band & Fleetwood Mack joining them on stage.
Written by Deadric Malone & Joseph Wade Scott
Recorded 1972 at Pampa Studios, Detroit, Michigan
Released off the album Smokin’ O.P.’s.
Way before The Silver Bullet Band Bob Seger Rocked. Earliest recording I remember went back to The Last Heard and 1966′s “East Side Story”, “Persecution Smith” and what would become his signature song for all time “Heavy Music” in 67′. Then it went on to The Bob Seger System. This man never stopped, he only got better.
