Otis Rush - I Can't Quit You Baby

Nice version of this tune done in 1966. Great hang time on the first note. Notice the similarities between this version and the Zeppelin one. The main repeating riff is used by Jimmy Page and built on for the solo. Zeppelin's version is classic Page arrangement with Jones and Bonham providing a rhythm framework for Page's guitar and Plant's vocals.

Otis is playing a righty turned over and still strung for the right hand. It's damn hard to do that.
