    Actually the Allman Brothers version is based on Taj Mahal's cover of this song.

    Every time I hear this song I have to stop and reflect for a minute. This was picked on a 12 string… damn, that’s some talent. Something tells me that this older recording was sped up just a little.

    Well, rykowolf, I'm glad Last.fm helps you boost your self-confidence. However, there are many blues nerds who enjoy listening to this stuff.

    Why did the Allman Brothers even bother?

    daddy daddy left me wild wild wild, no I'm not good lookin but I'm some sweet mamma's sweet angel child.

    listening to this is quite fashionable. I feel very intellectual listening to this. Something to boast about at at last!
