Covers:

Not to be confused, neither with that other Shame Shame Shame, n°1 R&B for Shirley & Company (see there). Nor with Jimmy Reed's Shame Shame Shame for Vee-Jay ('63), covered by Johnny Winter, by the Stones as Little By Little (with Phil Spector on maracas), by Bryan Ferry and by Harry Manx. Jimmy McCracklin's ('62) is yet another red herring.
