"Got My Mojo Workin' "

OK, back to the 50's: This '56 Preston Foster blues classic was first recorded by gospel singer Ann Cole but made popular in '57 by Muddy Waters, with whom she toured. #359 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time, Grammy Hall Of Fame 2000 as well as RIAA and NEA Songs Of The Century. Covered by, among many others, Paul Butterfield Blues Band, Manfred Mann, The King, Canned Heat, B.B.King and Buddy Guy. "Pulverized" by The Shadows Of Knight on their '66 "Gloria" album.

Yesterday's answer: "Silver Threads And Golden Needles". Jack Rhodes co-wrote Porter Wagoner's "A Satisfied Mind" with Joe "Red" Hayes, later covered by The Byrds on their "Turn, Turn, Turn!" album. Linda's version of "Silver Threads" is my fave but, as you know, Linda can "sing the phone book". Earlier covered by The Springfields, a duo with Dusty and her brother Tom.
