Aretha Franklin (1967)
Words & Music by Curitis Ousley
From The Album "I Never Loved A Man The Way I Loved You". Part of Aretha Franklin's legendary album I Never Loved A Man The Way I Loved You, the composer credit on this song goes to Franklin with her sister (and backup singer) Carolyn and sax player King Curtis. The song, however, is basically a rewrite of the 1966 track "Help Me" by the R&B singer Ray Sharpe, who wrote the song with Curtis and performed it with the King Curtis Orchestra. Also on that original recording: Jimi Hendrix, who played guitar in Sharpe's band.

W&M by Fenton Robinson
Somebody Loan Me a Dime is a 1974 studio album by blues singer and guitarist Fenton Robinson, his debut under the Alligator Records imprint. Blending together some elements of jazz with Chicago blues and Texas blues, the album was largely critically well received and is regarded as important within his discography. Among the album's tracks is a re-recording of his 1967 signature song, "Somebody Loan Me a Dime", which has become a blues standard. It has been reissued multiple times in the United States and Japan, including with bonus tracks.

The first recording to be released was by Major Lance, as a single in December 1963, produced by Okeh label president Carl Davis. The song was Major Lance's third release to make the Billboard Hot 100 and his most successful hit with a #5 peak on the Billboard Hot 100 on 8 February 1964 with a #1 peak on the Cash Box R&B chart (Billboard did not run an R&B chart November 1963-January 1965). In the UK it reached #40, Lance's only UK chart appearance. The song would become a major UK hit in the autumn of 1964 via a rendition by Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders which reached #5. A French rendering entitled "Hum, hum, hum" had been recorded by Frank Alamo and charted in France in early 1965 with a chart peak of #6.
