The UK Pye International 45 has the original version. The remix is an abomination.

WARNING!
These 3 pressings are NOT reissues of the original 1955 version but are in essence a vile remix
For some crazy and known to none reason in 1960, the held 1955 master was OVERDUBBED with backing vocals and clapping (may be the Mike Sames singers or Rita Williams singers were in the "windy city" on holiday)

It's truly appalling what was done and how a gem has been tarnished! Why?
All USA Checker # 955 pressings with R7777 matrix are this 1960 tampered with mix
All USA Checker # 955 pressings with 7777 matrix are Little Walter's 1955 original recording and mix!

Have no idea as to what the later UK Pye Int and the Phonogram Chess single versions are if these companies at the time had any sense/credibility and product knowledge they would have requested and have had the 1955 masters lifted and supplied!

Once you hear how LW intended it you will ditch how Chess amended it fact!
