Taj Mahal: Ain't That A Lot Of Love [1968]

Taj's version was recorded "live" at the Rolling Stones Rock And Roll Circus, and features the great Chuck Blackwell on drums.

A native of Tulsa, OK, Chuck played with Taj Mahal (obv.), Leon Russell, Joe Cocker, and Freddie King, among others. Chuck is "the drummer" in the song Shootout At The Plantation who "never hit a bad lick in his life." To hear Chuck ruling a different varietal of the Gimme Some Lovin' beat, check this out.

...and don't miss the amazing Hollywood Hangover!

bonus beats:
