Great track. I love the original. This version is good, but is a little overplayed IMHO - less is more.

Great version here from Bristol UK based Ruzz Guitar Blues Review

Beautiful tone but a bit busy for my taste. Danny Gatton did my fave version. The video of Chat and Leo just below is pretty great. 

 
Mr. Gatton owns this one

Thinking the same thing, ought to introduce rappers & hi-hoppers to this.  The sounds sit on the nerves so easily.

 
Please don't.  
Finally a Stray Cats song that I like.  It shows that these guys really are good musicians, they just write bad rockabilly songs.  
and now back to basics
i feel another good run is on it's way
