When the original artist was a teenager she scored a hit performing with a group called The Peaches, which also happened to be her nickname. At Last, she signed to Chess Records and scored a number of r&b hits for them throughout the 60’s.
This song was included on her 1968 album, and while she wasn’t the first to record it, her version is the most well-known, having changed the lyrics and the title from Clarence Carter’s original to make it about her instead of him.
The Shadow artist recorded her version in Toronto in 1970 while on a famous Canadian train tour with The Grateful Dead, The Band and other big rock bands of the time.
