Willie & Laura Mae Jones - Dusty Springfield

One of my favorite Tony Joe White tracks, "Willie & Laura Mae Jones", was left off Dusty Springfield's landmark Dusty In Memphis LP and released as a single when her followup album was cancelled. It's a great southern roots song that makes me long for simpler times and simpler pleasures. Pure Dusty gold.

 Betty Swann effectively turns up the funk with her version.
