Author Notes

What could have easily been generic 'Beatlemania' filler for Green's debut album is instead turned into a two-minute bottle-rocket soul recording -- an Al Green recording.  "Shut up, Al Green" says a voice from the control room, but Green is already in full flight, delivering a rendition that is somewhere between Little Richard and James Brown, and goes far beyond hand-holding.
 
This song is a part of C3X.

This is really cool! I'd never heard it before, but what an awesome take on an all-time great song.  Thanks for sharing this one!

Likewise, my pleasure.  The first time I heard it was recently as well, and I knew I wanted to chart it before it was even done playing.
