The Feel It Advent-ure 2021: Door 4

Here's a great bluesy number from Lowell Fulsom (real name actually Fulson I believe, using both names at different times for contractual reasons). Yes, it sounds a bit like Tramp (most well known, at least outside the US, as being recorded by Otis Redding & Carla Thomas) and that's deliberate because it was actually the follow up to Lowell's version Tramp which he is credited as co-writing with Jimmy McCracklin and is the original. It reached the Billboard top 5 and was released a few months before Otis & Carla's rendition.

This 45 had a great picture cover, which unfortunately does not adorn my copy.

What else is there to do on a cold winter's night :)
