Not as good as Sam Cooke.

Wow, I don't know which of those two versions has a better group of backing musicians: Howlin' Wolf playing with Clapton, Winwood, and half the Stones, or Sam Cooke with Billy Preston and Ray Charles?

Is this the same Clapton of extended onstage racist rant renown?

"the content owner has not made this video available on mobile"

Why do people do that? Why would anyone care that I'm watching YouTube on a tablet versus a computer?

Isn't that an option that has to be toggled "on" by the uploader? It might be that it's an easily-missed button.

I somewhere have a CD with this on it. Bought it from a bootleg record store about 20 years ago. I used to just put that thing on repeat and drive around and listen to it. "You ain't got nothin' to do but count."

I am mystified that it is even an option. There might as well be a "only load in Netscape Navigator at 800X600" button.

Yeah, I've never understood how Clapton could make a career out of appropriating black culture, playing with black musicians, and then make crackpot comments about race and immigration. Cocaine is a helluva drug, I guess.

Thought you were talking about when Wolf almost misses his cue on "Do the Do" (at about 1:05).
