A while back I ran a few comps that I deemed Basic Garage Mechanics. This tune is not so much that as it is one played by many artists as an standard or closer for their sets. The Grateful Dead brought this tune out as a Pigpen anthem in their early blues days and accept for a short time after Pig's death it remained in their rotation. The original piece was released by Bobby Blue Bland in the late 50's and has been played as a standard since that day.

When I was back in London an old friend dug out his singles and played me a version by Long John Baltry, which you might like to hear
A interesting trivial piece from wikipedia:
Baldry formed Bluesology featuring Reg Dwight on keyboards and Elton Dean, later of Soft Machine, as well as Caleb Quaye on guitar. Dwight adopted the name Elton John, his first name from Dean and his surname from Baldry
