Around '55, Billy moved to Chicago where he signed to Vee Jay records (then later Chess), and while he was successful songwriter and live performer, his own records didn't make much of a dent. In '66 he started his own record label (Tarpon) of which this was the debut. He also released Denise LaSalle excellent "A Love Reputation" during the same year.
This remake is hot stuff indeed, and nicely updated the number into an intense mid-60's r&b workout.
