Has anyone else ever noticed that most rock songs about going to see the doctor generally rock like crazy?

Though not sounding like Robert Johnson, the lyrics are evocative of him - and of course Poison Whiskey will follow.








Yes the harp is fab - reminds me of Will Shade (Mississippi Sheiks)

Here it is. One of the best songs ever written. So iconic it's hard to believe it didn't exist forever.

The demo version on the box set is stunning even without the guitar armageddon at the end.

Donnie refused to sing this for years after he took over vocals in the band. He let the audience sing it. They hung one of Ronnie's hats on the mic stand in tribute.
