Other artists who covered this include Paul McCartney, Carl Perkins, Ray Charles and LeAnn Rimes. Al Kooper recorded it on his debut solo album I Stand Alone
. This is the album with Al's face inserted over a photo of the Statue of Liberty - and remember, there was no Photoshop in 1968! Kooper's cover was ill-fated; right about this time was when his former Blood Sweat & Tears bandmates started saying negative things about him in the press. As he puts it in Backstage Passes and Backstabbing Bastards
, "They depicted me as some demonic egomaniac with whips and chains who kept them all in cages." The press had never had anything to characterize Al Kooper by up until this point, so they latched onto this. The Statue-of-Liberty photo hacking didn't help.
