    Long been fascinated by this song -- and the Otis/Carla version.

    But in this one I'm always counting the bars to analyze a form that is changing from 12 bar to 16 bar or something. My basic strategy is to ignore the initial vamp and start my counting on the IV, calling it Bar 5.

    When he does the solo the band conventionalizes the form to a 12 bar, without the doubled IV section.

    In contrast, the Booker T-arranged version only sits two bars on the IV, and extends the next I.

    Which one was the cover, the Otis version? Always thought the drums on this were very paleo-hip hop.

    I like Lowell’s version best...of course, Otis and Carla are awesome, but how ‘bout that Little Ol’ Band From Texas...

    Fulson (also, misknown as Fulsom) was a great soul blues singer/player/songwriter. They aren't making any more of him.
