We used to have to talk James into singing this original song of his, but it was always fun to play. When he'd recorded it back in the early '60s as a 45 rpm single, it had been banned from the radio! Times have definitely changed; nowadays, no one would bat an eyebrow at these lyrics. Call it "PG-rated."

Personnel: Sweet Baby James, vocals; Renato Caranto, sax; Eddie Martinez, guitar; Micah Kassell, drums; myself, Hammond B-3
