Well youâ€™re about to find out, courtesy of this insane 1963 soul workout from REX GARVIN, originally released on the world-famous OKEH label. I first came into contact with it vis-ÃÂ -vis an ace GIBSON BROS cover of the song; later YO LA TENGO attempted it as well, though I am not privy to how that one turned out. I then heard Garvinâ€™s original on the wild â€œpartyâ€Â compilation LP, â€œAT THE PARTYâ€Â, which is a must-track-down if you can ever find it (Iâ€™ll bet Norton Records might still have some).
In the course of my limited research on this song Iâ€™ve just now found out that a blog called THE STYPOD has posted both Garvinâ€™s version and the two aforementioned covers. It canâ€™t hurt for the â€˜Twang to post Garvinâ€™s version again, can it?
