Hank Williams Jr., "Come and Go Blues"

Bocephus gave Allman's "Come and Go Blues" a slightly down-tempo reading for his 1979 Whiskey Bent and Hell Bound album. But the results were utterly transfixing. Williams liked Allman's melancholy but rump-shaking composition of blues fusion – originally released on the Allman Brothers Band's Brothers and Sisters in 1973 – but favored a bit of swampy acoustic funk in his version, over Allman's piano intro. Williams methodically makes his way through the arrangement, letting a country yodel out periodically to heighten the tune's more poignant moments. It's a solemn approach that stands apart from the juke-joint original.
