When this song came out, I bought the 78, went into my room, locked the door, turned it to Part II and heard it over and over again, against the noise of my mother telling me to turn the volume down. One of the best all time instrumentals.

Donald, Bill Doggett or Jimmy Smith?

Same thing happened to me in 1964..I brought the record I want to hold your hand home went in my room and played it for hours as my mom was yelling from the kitchen Turn that noise down.

While driving all night, this song came on my radio. A great song to listen to while on the road.

This is one of those records you can play and dance to until the end of time. It is still the highest charting record ever on the King label. It has taught countless bands how to play R&B (especially what a "groove" is in music). Though much has been made (and deservedly so) of Clifford Scott's groundbreaking sax work on this record, please don't forget that it is Billy Butler's equally stunning guitar work on Part 1 that made dee jays play both sides of the record (they even duet at the end of the record). All this would be nothing without Bill and the backing musicians playing the steadiest, most monstrous groove in the history of R&B (even the shouts are in place...and necessary). This is one for the history books indeed.

DAMN,HOW I LOVE YOUR REVIEW! THAT REALLY NAILED IT! The tube amps of that time provided a colorful distorion that can't be equalled today....History books,indeed......................................BTW,think that "honky tonk" means "white man's club"............................
