Specialty boss Art Rupe rejected this whole session (Summertime version and all) and sold it to Keen Records, a label around the corner. There it became n°1 US & R&B. The real composer was Sam, but since he owed Specialty another 8 sides, he credited his brother.

Clif White's comment, the guitarist on this original remembering the moment Sam first demonstrated it: "I thought it was the most ridiculous song I ever heard in my life. Simply because it wasn't saying anything. I mean, he just kept on singing, 'you send me', and I thought he was out of his fucking mind. I said, 'when is the song gonna start? I thought he was lost. I said, 'Hell, I think he forgot the words to his song'. (from Peter Guralnick's biography Dream Boogie - The Triumph Of Sam Cooke (Little, Brown & company).
