There has been some talk surrounding The Tramp by Otis Redding and Carla Thomas and The Champ by The Mohawks. Naturally we have posted both and you know by now that those songs have served as a break beat for many R&B, Rap and Gospel songs.

In the 1960's up until around the 1980's a song that was out was covered by just about everyone, especially if it was a Motown/Tamla song. During that time it was difficult so say who did what fist because a lot of songs became standards of their time. Lowell Fulsom had Tramp as a 45 but he was primarily a live artist and a song writer. His most memorable and influential recordings included: Three O'Clock Blues (now a blues standard); the Memphis Slim-penned Everyday I Have the Blues; Lonesome Christmas; Reconsider Baby recorded in 1960 by Elvis Presley and in 1994 by Eric Clapton for his From the Cradle album as well as by Joe Bonamassa and Tramp (co-written with Jimmy McCracklin and later covered by Otis Redding with Carla Thomas, ZZ Top (on 2003's Mescalero), Alex Chilton, and Tav Falco.

Does that clear up any confusion or just add more? Ask and you shall receive?
