Rufus is hilarious there, but what a horrible version of the song.
Here, to cleanse y'all's palates:
The late great sideman Hiram Bullock on guitar...
Gotta love Rufus. He was a DJ on WDIA in Memphis, a local legend. I got to jam with him back in the day. He was hoot, a gentleman and a real showman.
tough act to follow
I've seen RT do this song live. He was wearing a lime green jump suit that left nothing to the imagination. He said "I'm as funky as three day old chitlins" and he was right.
That version by the Stones would not have passed the test back in the day for any dance band that played around here. We danced to R&B almost every weekend....Little Latin Lupe Lou, Louie Louie, the list goes on and on. Here’s one.....Hitch Hike...Marvin Gaye
There was a group out of Oklahoma City that carried brass, a B3, a soul singer specialist....great band. They worked this kind of music! The Viscounts.....it finally came to me. One Saturday night, there was a battle,of the bands between The Viscounts and a very good band out of Lubbock called The Sparkles....double drummers....good band. This was in Littlefield, TX...hometown of Waylon...about 38 miles northwest of Lubbock. Littlefield had a population of a little over 7,000 back then...fading away now. There were 1100 people in that former skating rink/Quonset hut from 3 states. Big night.....hard dancing Baptist’s we were!!!! Lol....
Thanks for the post, Thoughtfree....good memories.
