Lately, while driving around L.A., I’ve been listening to the final compilation Fat Possum released in their Not The Same Old Blues Crap series (volume 3). In contrast to the previous entries, which focused strictly on Blues, Volume 3 introduced the non-Blues direction the label was moving in. Amongst others on the comp were Thee Shams, a garage band from Cincinnati who later morphed into the Buffalo Killers. I lost track of the band after Please Yourself, their Fat Possum release, but always dug their take on “Get Out of My Life Woman” (off their debut).
All in all I probably have 15-20 various covers of this track. One word: Toussaint.
