Bill 'The Lung' Withers has no equal, period. This may be his very best song, of many excellent ones. The voice, the lyrics, the groove, all mesh perfectly. Lenny and Mick's cover is also excellent, but I can't give a cover a higher rating than the original, unless the original really sucked and the coverer rescued it. Clearly not the case here. c.

I really love this, but I think I love Mick Jagger and Lenny Kravitz's version more.

Came on AM  radio ... WLS Chicago all the way way up to Northern Ontario... Came on between Tull  and Floyd or sometimes after Sly and before Joni.
Amazing time, really. Early 70s !

Definitely a classic of classics. Have any of you heard Jacqui Naylor's version? Very smoky and sultry.

I love this tune and this singer, but when Mick came out with his version done with Lenny Kravits on guitar and backing vocals, this was totally eclipsed for me.

 Every single time I hear this song, I am taken back to a brief snippet of time, northern Ohio in the summer, probably 1972, sharing what was alleged to be red dirt marijuana (Terry Southern out of context?) and this song on the radio. Probably WMMS. I guess it was pretty good stuff to have emblazoned this song so deeply. Great song, regardless of the context.

Not only was it '72 it was so overplayed on the radio at the time.  But it's still a great song.
