First time I heard this was on my Philco AM radio in my 1968 Ford at about 3 am coming up I-5 from Portland. That was a great radio - picked up signals from quite a ways away.
Unfortunately they never gave this guy any air time here. I drove down to Portland and bought the album the next day:

Speaking of Captain Beefheart, this guy was his guitar player until Van Vliet fall off the stage during a performance.
From "Paradise and Lunch". Great album.

I see somebody's posted "I Hear You Knockin'" above.

If you're ready for the real deal, here you go:


don't believe there's ever been a "cover" of this one, but one of the best tracks on that album is this little number from Johnny Young.
Johnny Young on mandolin. Lefty Diz on lead guitar.


(* no idea why YouTube is showing a different picture on that one. the only place I've ever found that is on that "19 Tracks" album, which was originally only available on vinyl *)
