Classic Covers: “Take Me to the River”
I like to think I know a lot about music. I don't. I always said, "Larry Allen forgot more about this music than I will ever know." But I am still learning.
On November 4th, 1978, the Talking Heads released the song "Take Me to the River." It was a cover of an Al Green song from 1974. It's not the only Classic Rock version though. Foghat had it on their "Night Shift" record.
I don't even think it's close. The Foghat version stays true to the original and melts your face off. Those riffs and melodies... Better call this one in to Wally on Saturday night.
