Covers: The Things That I Used to Do

Guitar Slim‘s 1953 record “The Things That I Used to Do:” was a big hit in 1954. It was arranged and produced by Ray Charles. You can hear the wild Guitar Slim strain against the confinements of Charles’s precise arrangement. Guitar Slim was an influence on Buddy Guy and Earl King among others.

Earl King was great. Check out some of his own songs.
