Recorded at American, Dan's first song there. Suited lead singer Louis Williams's Sam Cooke-styled delivery well. Re-recorded in '69 with horns & vocal overdubs while skipping the spoken introduction.
Dan Penn & Spooner Oldham [autobiographical to say the least: royalties rolling in like rainwater makes they might just as well go out fishing every day, which is pretty much what both of these songwriters' been doing lately; Dan's demo came out on his ACE comp The Fame Recordings ('12)]
Julian Dawson [on cd Living Good]
