A great song complements of Tom Waits. Of all the versions peformed for The wire, seasons (1-5) this is my fav (season 1) The boys of Alabama just get this one right. A simple soulful classic south style. The bite i spoke of comes in the form of jagged textured harmonica and the sudden breaks in the song punctuated by the snare.
A great song but even better when peformed by these fine musicians. Check out the rest of their stuff if you like this.
