OK, so Wilson Pickett and Steve Cropper still disagree over who deserves
the lion's share of the writing credit on this... but regardless of who
is primarily responsible, they created an instant soul classic.  --AWR

Andrew Rogers did all the work on this, I just threw in the tabbed solo 
                                                             - Doug
