    His voice sounds really different on this, but awesome. I love the vibrato in his voice at about :20 on "baby." The lyrics seem pretty improvised too, he kind of mumbles lyrics along to a good vocal melody. Idk anyone else really like this?

    Yeah, it's a lovable late nite, slightly drunk & drugged, loose jamming-with-friends kind of vocal ;D
    The first two stanzas are pretty much the standard Guitar Slim set of lyrics, the third is just improvisation on the theme, or a common blues couplet insertion.

    Like it a lot. Considering he was probably both drunk and stoned it's awesome.
