One of the artists who defined Memphis Soul and put Stax Records on the map, Rufus Thomas is known for liking his R&B hard-edged, gritty and earthy. That approach served him impressively well on his debut album 'Walking The Dog'. In contrast to the sleeker, more elaborate production style favored by Motown, Rufus Thomas rejects Pop elements altogether and thrives on rawness on his hits 'Walking The Dog' and 'The Dog' as well as inspired versions of 'Land Of 1000 Dances' (which became a major hit for Wilson Pickett), Lee Dorsey's 'Ya Ya' and John Lee Hooker's 'Boom Boom'. The title track became his biggest hit. The song was covered by The Rolling Stones in 1964. Many other artists have covered the song, including Aerosmith, Roger Daltrey, Green Day, The Flamin' Groovies, The Sonics, The Trashmen and more.
