Wilson Pickett with Duane Allman-Hey Jude
No doubt Wilson Pickett's version of Hey Jude is in regular rotation in God's itunes library. It's just too good. I recently heard a story about the recording of it down in Muscle Shoals. Apparently in that time (late 60's Alabama), a bunch of white session musicians going to lunch with a black dude and a long hair was a bit taboo. Duane and Wilson hung back at the studio where Duane convinced him to cover Hey Jude. Magic ensued. Make sure you listen through the 2:45 mark where they really bring it down.
