Attesting to what a great song 'I Hear You Knocking' is, the Smiley Lewis classic can't even being ruined by Gale Storm! Now, granted, no one wants to hear Pat Boone's very white version of Little Richard's 'Tutti Frutti', I always found Ms. Storm pretty much asexual a la Doris Day, but I can't honestly say that Gale's take on Smiley's blues is illegitimate. It succeeds as entertaining pop music. Then again, I may be prejudiced. I've never heard a bad version of 'I Hear You Knocking'. The best version to my ear is still Dave Edmunds' interpretation.
This is not your bias, but a solid review. For upon purchase, I played the B-Side first, & having no prior knowledge of the artist nearly tossed the disc out my 3rd story window. But I instead flipped it & played “Knocking” FANTASTIC rendition.
