Big Boss Man

This is a song written by Luther Dixon and Al Smith in 1960, first released by Jimmy Reed in 1960 on the VeeJay label. I first heard it done by the dead but Leon Russell, B.B. King, Charlie Rich, Bobby Gentry and many others have also done good versions.  Steve Miller did not do a good version. Elvis of course kills it.
