You will have to pardon me for not having heard the original. I am from 65.

But I can hear that this is an excellent production, and you have the voice for it.

Also, that Sax 2017 RT is wonderfully produced and mastered.

Hi Rob,

Thanks for your comments - here are a few of the many artists who have covered this blues classic with distinction:

Hank Williams Jr.
BB King
Billie Holiday
Bobby Bland (my favourite)

Best Regards

Nigel, I knew this was an old song, but I'd only heard Hank Jr.'s version before. This song is right up your alley, as if it should have been written for you. Great job on it. I especially liked the way you sang out the ending. It was a fun listen.

Nigel, you absolutely nailed this one.

Outstanding sax and vocal

Super mix

This as good as this song can get IMHO

Loved it

You rock, Nigel. What a wonderful rendition. Heard so many versions and this one soars to share the top. I like the feel you gave it, and of course your vocal takes it to that next level. Love that 420 bass, and that sax.

Hey Nigel ...

Love this old swing tunes. You absolutely nailed it. You have the perfect voice for it. Nothing but great sounds here.

Asa I listened, I was thinking another great from the past who would have done a great cover on this is Louie Armstrong. But, that said, your version is simply great! Always enjoy your work.

Alan

Nigel,

An excellent rendition.

I really like your vocal.
Super Cool Bass!
Nice sax, a just-right piano.

Excellent mix - very "present". Everything sounds good and the vocal shines.

Well done.

Yeah!

I've heard this song many times over the years by many people, played it in a band myself back in the day.

You nailed it I think, Nigel, excellent vocal and your band is right on the money.

Great!
