Ive always like this version by Throttlerod:



Its played quite true to Ram Jams version but it tends be the version I'll listen to.

Thats a good one too.This is becoming like a wikipedia page of 'Black Betty'...I wonder who will post their favourite version of this song next! smile.gif

I must admit the name Throttlerod isn't my favourite band name.....(My name taken into account!) laugh.gif
