Wilson Pickett and Duane Allman 1968

I first heard this a few years ago when my Homie, Grouchy Greg (@GrouchyGreg) of AllHipHop.com, included it on a rare soul mix-tape. If you’ve never heard it, it’s one that you’ll want to check out!
There’s also a great story behind the recording of this cover.

Never loved a man / Mai amato un uomo

it translate – Tu sei un cattivo rubacuori,Sei un bugiardo, sei una fregatura,E io non so perché ti lascio fare queste cose,I miei amici continuano a dirmi,Che non sei nulla di buono,Ma non sanno che ti lascerei se solo potessi,Credo di essere legata,Appiccicata come la colla,Perché io non ho mai, mai, mai amato,Amato un uomo nel modo in cui amo, amo te A volte però ho pensato Che le tue pazzie fossero finite Ma mi sbagliavo di grosso, sei sempre quello di prima Il modo in cui mi tratti è vergognoso Come hai potuto ferirmi tanto? Piccolo, lo sai che sono la cosa migliore che ti sia mai capitata Baciami ancora Non dirmi mai che è finita Perché non ho mai, no, mai amato Amato un uomo nel modo in cui amo, amo te on dormo di notte Non riesco a mangiare Credo che non sarò mai libera Perché…
