This is a very old love ballad, and no one seems to know who wrote the song. The song was first recorded by Bo Carter and Papa Charlie McCoy, in 1928. Later, it would become a rock staple, with versions recorded by Big Joe Turner (1956), Bill Haley (1959), Ray Peterson (1960), Dean Martin (1963), and Bob Dylan (1963).
To me, Steppenwolf and love ballads ... they don't exactly go together. Of, if they are going to make a love ballad, it will sound more like Sookie, Sookie, not Corina, Corina. I think they knew this didn't fit their image, and they never released a studio version of Corina.
Still, I think it is a great song, and I am happy to include it in my Steppenwolf list. Plus, I can never resist a love ballad.
