Ike & Tina Turner - Stagger Lee & Billy.
In the same vein . . . I love all of these songs about the Stagger Man. This is a very unusual retelling of the tale, in which Billy comes out on top. Great line: "Billy was hitting Stagger Lee so hard, the cops were scared to speak . . ." Another great performance by Tina, sure, but also another great song choice, production and band-direction by Ike.
