Description

No one has ever covered this old Arthur 'Big Boy' Crudup's classic better than a certain Mama Presley's Boy! Both John Fogerty and Dave Edmunds has made rather pathetic note-for-note covers of it, but none has even come close to El's thunderous version of it! And with that in mind, yours truly just winged it once again and did a totally different (and rather laidback!) version altogether, which is the way I work anyway, so...! In fact, I've done several different versions of this song throughout the years and each one a far cry in arrangement from El's classic outing. There's too many copy cats around anyway, so why be just another one?!! This version doesn't even have 'proper' guitar solos in it, which goes to show that I just cut it for fun with no intention whatsoever to make it 'public'! But that was way before You Tube happened to pop up, so here it is in all its vague glory! Hope you like...
