The clarinet at 2:00 is like wisps of smoke drifting upwards. Magic. They don't mak'em like that anymore.

Talk about a coincidence - when I saw this, there had been exactly 1,950 views.

THANK YOU FOR THE TIMINGS! So many compilations don't show the hours/minutes/secs when a song starts, The listener has no idea what's playing.

Luther Allison was a Blues genius. He deserves to be remembered. Thanks for posting this.

Not bad. The inflection is typical of the period. This is interesting because it provides context and background to the evolution of this famous song.

However, nothing compares with Billie Holliday's version. Nobody comes close.

Thank you for making Ruth Etting's version available.

This is wonderful. Absolute Heaven! Bach would approve.

Hearing this in the sound of the electric guitar gives a whole new dimension and appreciation to the piece.

BTW that's "Michel Petrucciani", not "Michelle" (at 39:19). The latter is a woman's name. Petrucciani was a dwarf who lived a short but brilliant life (1962-1999).

Spectacular guitar work. The drums seem a bit superficial.

This is indisputably the best rendition of this song. Better than Armstrong or Stewart. Her voice is sweet and sensitive. The way she rolls her eyes at 1:13 is understated but provocative. The syncopation (shifting the stress) shows mature, professional mastery of the craft.

Her voice became more brash in later years, as you can judge from other clips on YouTube.

This clip keeps appearing and disappearing from You Tube. Really? You think this "copyright violation" is going to eat into the enormous profits from sales of the 1951 movie "The Strip"? I would never have heard of the movie had it not been for Kay Brown. If anything, this would motivate me to buy a copy, if it were available.

His best version. Snappy, rollickin', vintage stomp.
