Jack White’s first solo effort “Blunderbuss” is on most everyone’s list of the best albums of 2012 – it’s certainly tops on ours. And no track is more fun than his cover of “I’m Shakin'”. The song was a hit for Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Little Willie John, and was written by Rudy Toombs, an R&B songwriter from the 50s. Enjoy Jack’s video (the only thing better than Jack White is two Jack Whites) and check out the pure vocals and simple sax line of Little Willie John’s version circa 1960.
You can catch all of “Blunderbuss” on YouTube. The title track isn’t a bad place to start.
Very glad to be introduced to Little Willie John! Thanks, HarryDJ.
