I Just Want To Make Love To You

Greatly Appreciated

“I Just Want to Make Love to You”  is a 1954 blues song written by Willie Dixon, first recorded by Muddy Waters, and released as “Just Make Love to Me” (Chess 1571).  The song reached number four on Billboard magazine’s R&B Best Sellers chart.  Backing Waters on vocals are Little Walter on harmonica, Jimmy Rogers on guitar, Otis Spann on piano, Willie Dixon on bass, and Fred Below on drums.  Waters recorded the song again for the album Electric Mud (1968).  (More from Wikipedia)

On June 2, 1964the Soul Agents released their first single on Pye Records, I Just Wanna Make Love to You b/w Mean Woman Blues.  Later in the year, the single was released in the U.S. and in Canada.  The band made a few lyric changes to the Willie Dixon song (and in the title as well – the actual title is “I Just Want To Make Love To You”), and they inserted some nice instrumental fills into their rendition of this blues standard.
