BABY PLEAZ........

Baby, Please Don't Go

"Baby, Please Don't Go" is a classic blues song which has been called "one of the most played, arranged, and rearranged pieces in blues history"] It was popularized by Delta blues musician Big Joe Williams, who recorded the first of several versions of the song in 1935. Its roots have been traced back to nineteenth-century American songs, which deal with themes of bondage and imprisonment. "Baby, Please Don't Go" became an early blues standard with recordings by several blues musicians.

After World War II, it was adapted by Chicago blues as well as rhythm and blues artists. Later, it became a popular rock song after it was recorded by the Northern Irish group Them in 1965. Several rock performers have followed Them's updated rock arrangement, with many recordings of the song. "Baby, Please Don't Go" has been inducted into both the Blues Foundation Hall of Fame and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. 

The Amboy Dukes version of the tune is an oustanding  representation of how this song developed in the psychedelic days of the 60's. Not every garage band played this one but it was a staple by many blues based rock and rollers.
