Covers: Stand By Me
“Stand By Me” has been recorded over 400 times. The original version is from 1961 by Ben E. King. Among the covers is a 1975 version by John Lennon. There’s a new version to benefit musicians.
The Rock Bottom Remainders was a group of authors who played old rock songs. They revised the lyrics for “Stand By Me” to suit the pandemic.
Covers: I Take What I Want
“I Take What I Want” was originally recorded by Sam and Dave in 1965. There’s a great cover version by Ann Peebles from 1972. Both versions were recorded in Memphis.

Covers: Part Time Love
“Part Time Love” was recorded by Little Johnny Taylor in 1963. I know it from the Ann Peebles version from 1970 which has an insistent, almost disco, beat.
There are blues versions by Otis Rush and Little Milton which slow it down.
