Also, Pandemic’s new title The Saboteur features a slightly remixed version that accompanies the newest trailer. Definitely very close to the source material whilst giving it a slightly updated feel.

Fits the mood and environment very nicely.

If you want to hear real blues. Listen to a real blues singer.

The song was written in 1965 and performed by many artists, the first being Gilbert Price in the original Broadway musical it was written for.
