B-side of Slow Motion. (John) Cale had followed his friend Leon Russell from Tulsa to California. Produced by Snuff Garrett, owner of the Viva label, with Cale as staff producer (Bryan Hyland, Blue Cheer) and where he soon released an lp as member of studio band Leathercoated Minds (Take A Trip Down Sunset Strip). Rare up-tempo version where his friend Carl Radle received a copy from. As Delaney & Bonnie's bassist and soon a member of Derek & The Dominos, Carl showed Clapton the single. Clapton's more laid back hit approach inspired J.J. to adopt it as his trademark. The Liberty original was reissued on Capitol lp compilation You Heard It Here First, cradled with originals as we like 'em.
Eric Clapton [hit US; later also covered Cale's Cocaine successfully]
J.J. Cale [on debut solo album Naturally; as laid back as Clapton's]
Pioneers [as Let It All Hang Out]
Clapton's cover landed J.J. a recording contract for a first solo album with Audie Ashworth producing in Bradley's Barn in Mount Juliet, TN.
