Written by: Willie Dixon Recorded: Chess Studios, Chicago, USA, June 10-11 1964
From Martin Elliott’s book THE ROLLING STONES COMPLETE RECORDING SESSIONS 1962-2012:
Possibly inspired by the presence of Willie Dixon himself, the band turn out an up-tempo number which streaks along. Keith Richards puts on his running shoes and gets to grip by laying down an atmospheric rhythm guitar. Ron Mal adds his studio expertise and helps to create a solid Stones performance. He was a famed Chess engineer who had previously recorded classics by Chuck Berry, Muddy Waters, Bo Diddley and Howlin’ Wolf at the very same studios.
