Gary: “Another 12 bar blues song written by Luther Dixon and Al Smith in 1960 and recorded by Russ’s favourite guy Jimmy Reed in 1961. Again I am back to the simple back beat type of music, simple and straight forward. Now Russ likes some of it, but being an excellent musician he can be critical, so he needs me to keep him focused on what the other part of the public likes. But this type of music, he and I agree totally, Blues. I will give you the Jimmy Reed version, but include some other versions that I enjoy. Of significance Luther also penned 16 Candles which the Crests recorded. We lost Luther in 2009.
