Walk a Mile in My Shoes

When " researching" my recent Roxy Music post I noted that Bryan Ferry has covered Walk a Mile in My Shoes the terrific song written by Joe South.
Joe had a hit with it in 1970 and it was subsequently covered by Elvis Presley much to Joe's bank manager's delight I suspect.

It has also been covered by Jerry Lee Lewis and Otis Clay among others.
However the version that I am most familiar with comes from the mighty Willie Hightower.

Checking the hard drive I also have a version by Earl Grant courtesy of our friends over at Funky16 Corners

  1. And for something completely different there is the wonderful Coldcut featuring Robert Owens version from 2006.
