Actually, I'm quite good at 'extrapolation' too !

On the 'Alizee' thread or anywhere else................................

This Elvis version easily outstrips the TJW version by a mile.


Hmmmmm, I don't know about that. Tony Joe White's original has that jam edge to it. I hear it and picture him on a guitar stool, electric guitar in hand, foot tapping on the bar rest grooving with the band around him just immersed in the music. Elvis' live cover version from On Stage depicts an entirely different image which of course is bolstered from what we have seen from TTWII. Which one is better I don't know, they are both very close in a head to head. I'd call a split decision at this point as I am undecided.

Well said Matthew. It is a toss-up. Tony Joe's version should not be so easily dismissed.

Of the 3 TJW covers Elvis did, my fave is "I've Got A Thing About You, Baby."

Not surprisingly, "Polk salad Annie" got most votes.

Thanks for voting!
