Another collector and I were talking the other day on this song, each taking a side to which version was the better one.

While I like both, I would give it to Elvis for the raw energy he puts into the song.

Rufus Thomas' "Bear Cat" first followed by Willie Mae Thornton. What the hell is Elvis' version about anyway?

Not many votes so far, maybe, some are not familiar with both versions. So, here's Big Mama Thorton's followed by Elvis'.
