The Real Thing

It's very unusual for me to dis a part of my own posts, but that Bowie version of "Knock On Wood" I put up this morning has been bugging me slightly all day long. So I'm putting up a far better live version of it. It's Eddie Floyd, the original creator of the song, doing it with Bruce and the E Streeters in Memphis in the Spring of 1976.

Enjoy the real thing.

Download: Bruce Springsteen w/Eddie Floyd "Knock On Wood/Yum Yum Yum (I Want Some)" 4/29/76, Memphis, TN

PS: It was after this show that Springsteen drove out to Graceland and tried to meet Elvis - by climbing over the wall and running up the driveway. He was gently escorted from the premises.
