Fenton Robinson was born in Greenwood Mississippi in 1935 and moved to memphis at age 18 where his recording career began. In 1962, Robinson moved to Chicago where he became a part of the blues/ r&b scene.

This incredible side was cut in 1967, and the flip side "Somebody Loan Me A Dime" (technically the a-side) of which was "appropriated" a few years later by Boz Scaggs. After years of legal struggles the writing credit was finally given back to Fenton Robinson. However, THIS is the side brimming with fire and fury, and while both sides are great this is the one I feel like sharing.

One minute forty seconds. Blink and you'll miss it, or play it over and over again as I do.

from 1967...
