    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?

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

    Jolie Holland sure was right when she said nobody sings like Willie McTell.

    But I know one thing, no one can sing the blues like Blind Willie McTell.
