Mose Allison

Baby Please Don't Go

Song Review by

Another great Mose Allison interpretation, this Joe Williams classic blues song was transformed by Allison into a swinging, bossa nova groove. Some tight ensemble playing is one of the highlights. Allison also takes one of his finest early solos here, all the while scat singing over his own licks, and the effect is fabulous. Ted Nugent and the Amboy Dukes had a very big hit with this in 1968 with their revved-up, psychedelic version.
