An older Canadian band called "Wide Mouth Mason" cover this song and simply knock it out of the park. Amazing rendition.

"Beck went into the story in a bit further detail in Annette Carson’s book Jeff Beck: Crazy Fingers, saying, “One day I was sitting at the drum kit, which I love to play when nobody’s around, doing this beat. Stevie came kinda boogieing into the studio: ‘Don’t stop.’ ‘Ah, c’mon, Stevie,’ I can’t play the drums.’ Then the lick came out: ‘Superstition.’ That was my song, in return for Talking Book. I thought, ‘He’s given me the riff of the century.'”

I'm long gone but he is still there according to Wikipedia.

PS Bill Evans was on my route - and I cut his lawn, too.   

 
Alpine? I had no idea he lived there - I didn't think very many people lived there at all. It was directly across the river from where I grew up; we used to go to that little park near the Boat Basin when we were kids. Anyhow, cool story about Stevie and Evans.

I've known this song intimately for decades, but I'm sitting at work today with headphones on and it still sounds as fresh and as funky as just about anything I have ever heard.

Happy New Year everyone.

I feel your pain...
... yet for me this song is one of the very few that manages to "keep the groove" when I hear it on the radio despite the beer ads, etc.  If that's not "godlike" I don't know what is. 

I do think one feature is the drum intro, which always catches my ear on the first or second beat.
