When I tell folks that I was Bobby Mansfield's roommate when we both were in the USAF stationed in Maine in 1959 they look at me and go, 'yeah, right. Bobby & I became great friends & when he told me he had recorded a hit record with a singing group before he joined the AF I just said, 'yeah, right'. Anyway Bobby got out and pursued his singing career and I remained in for 30 yrs. It was when I saw Bobby and the Wrens on an oldie show on public tv back in 2008 or so that I knew he hadn't lied. I got in touch with him and he remembered me. We stayed in touch thru e mails and phone calls until he passed last year. I'm proud to say I was Bobby Mansfield's friend.
Love this song by Muddy Waters, but it should lose, not loose. Great big difference.
Heard this as a child growing up in the 50s. Never liked W.Harrison's version b/c he cut out the middle. 'I'm going to pack my clothes, leave at the crack of dawn. My old lady will be sleeping and she won't know where I've gone.' He went right to 'If I stay with that woman'. It like cutting out the middle of a movie. Anyway Willie Littlefield's KC Loving wasn't as popular as Harrison's Kansas City but imho it was far superior.
It's hard to listen to this after listening the original recording. I know it's still Muddy, but damn.

I go to George's Pet Supply store to purchase 'Taste Of The Wild' dog food. I always find George and his staff to be very friendly and helpful. The only problem I have is I can never remember the store hours or whether or not he's open on Sundays. I think he should include the store hours on this website.
