well found! (amongst a multi-track post)

it's outrageous that a single track YT post, for this song,
is not available for U.S. locations

U.K. locations have access to this hi-fi single track post:

SPONTANEOUS LUNACY VERDICT 3/10
an illuminating comment by Sampson, to keep in mind for songs by any other 50s artist:

"attaching the word 'boogie' to their song title indicates it's for a rock audience"

The tinkle, tinkle piano, sounds like UK's 50s adult-pop/boogie pianist Winifred Atwell
(born in Trinidad btw) has trespassed the session.

Mitchell's wailing sax, slurred in melodic terms, takes over from the tinkling piano at 0:50.

I like this general remark from Sampson:

"In many ways, adapting a song, especially one without pesky details like lyrics and
singing to get in the way, should enable a really creative musician to radically alter
{the song's} image by coming up with an arrangement that maintains just the basic
melody as a foundation before throwing in all sorts of different components to show
off your own creativity."

RWC VERDICT 3.5/10
