Ry Cooder - Get Your Lies Straight (1987)

Ry Cooder played guitar on a version of this song included on a solo record he produced in 1994 for his long-time back-up singer Terry Evans, but this version features Cooder on lead vocals and was recorded 7 years earlier.

The track was released as a 7" B-side, a left-over cut not included on Cooder's 'Get Rhythm' LP.

This is a cover of an old soul/funk tune by Bill Coday. I included the original in a recent podcast:
