This Bobby Womack song was found, worked up and recorded within a couple of hours. Joplin's guitarist John Till recalled in Mojo magazine May 2010: "Bobby was out in the lobby, standing by the Coke machine, strumming the song on his left-handed Guild Acoustic Archtop. Paul (Rothchild, producer) popped out to get a coffee, and a few minutes later he said, 'Come out here, I want you to hear something.' Next thing we knew we were back in the studio recording the song with the great Bobby Womack on guitar."
Bobby Womack released his own version of this song on his 1975 Safety Zone album.
