2 very different renditions of the same song. I see the direction Otis was going here. But I just don’t think he fully realized the potential in doing the song his own way. Then the duet? No thank you. Sam sings the hell this baby. It’s on the short list for my favsies by Mr Cooke. Get your mans Devs! He’s 0-3 in this piece.
I know I laughed when you left
But now I know I only hurt myself
You know I’ll always be your slave
‘Til I’m buried, buried in my grave”
*also, that’s Lou Rawls on Sam’s b/g vocals. How awesome is that?!?
**oh yeah. I also just got this on 45. Bitches!
