Ray Charles wrote it, Elvis recorded it and yours truly did a VERY improvised version of it in the early/mid-'60s, featured in the Dannish 'Tapeworms' Series called 'Waldoft's Open House', named after the creator and author himself, Otto Waldoft. Rhythm- & lead guitars and drums, that's all! No freakin' overdubs and similar hanky panky, just straight ahead and totally improvised, that's the way I like 'em! Recorded at my parents makeshift garage, as usual in those days and with absolutely no other intention than to have a bit of fun...that's what music is all about in my world! Hope you enjoy... TRIVIA: The song ”I Got A Woman” (originally titled ”I've Got A Woman”) builds on "It Must Be Jesus" by the Southern Tones, which Ray Charles was listening to on the radio while on the road with his band in the summer of 1954. He and a member of his band, trumpeter Renald Richard, penned a song that was built along a gospel-frenetic pace with secular lyrics and a jazz-inspired rhythm and blues (R&B) background. Released as a single by Ray Charles in December 1954 on the Atlantic label as Atlantic 45-1050 b/w "Come Back Baby." Both sides later appeared on his 1957 album 'Ray Charles' (subsequently reissued as 'Hallelujah I Love Her So'). The song would be one of the prototypes for what later became termed as "soul music" after Charles released "What'd I Say" nearly five years later. It was recorded late 1954 in the Atlanta studios of Georgia Tech radio station WGST. It was a hit—Charles' first—climbing quickly to #1 R&B in January 1955. Charles told the 'Pop Chronicles' that he performed this song for about a year before he recorded it on November 18, 1954. The song would lead to more hits for Charles during this period when he was on Atlantic. It was later ranked No. 235 on Rolling Stone′s list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time, one of Charles' five songs on the list. A re-recorded version by Ray Charles, entitled "I Gotta Woman" (ABC-Paramount 10649) reached No. 79 on the Billboard pop chart in 1965.
