Amos Milburn - Down The Road Apiece (1946)
Not much more can be said about this one. Ten years before rock and roll took off, Milburn perfected it from the boogie woogie side. A desert island track.
No surprise that Chuck Berry and the Stones went after it a few years later. Chuck's version is fucking incredible and is clearly the source for the Stones cover.
Truly one of the great American songs.
