Sorry babe, but I won't be home,
Won't be home tomorrow.
Sorry darlin' but I got to let you
Gotta let you down
Your wasten' my time
Got no love
Love left to give you anymore.

I gotta look for, I gotta find me a brand new
Find me a brand new woman
You know I gotta find, the one that won't
The one that won't run around
You took everything I had, but I got no love,
Love left to give you anymore.

If they put lipstick on that pig it would still be...a pig!

Ditttttto! ...well, except I played their LP last month. A cornerstone of my dusty slightly disturbing collection of 5000 or so albums! 
Thanks RP! The Rock-'n-Roll TIme Tunnel
Time Tunnel!

Love this tune, the slide says so  much.
We've heard from all of those the Lil Red Rooster influenced. Now, howzabout some Howlin Wolf?!
Excellent, Bill.  Got that album framed and hanging on the wall of my den... a classic.  More is acceptable.
awesome

gonna dig "See My Way" now  
{#Guitarist} so many of these members went on to great bands / the the pig is the bomb
London blues at it's best
I have not heard this in years.  I played this album to death back in the day.  Thanks, Bill

a 10 for all the right elements, 3 Michelin stars!  {#Hearteyes}
Not the only album by this group. They release a followup a year later in 1970, "Getting to This". Not as good as the first album but a few good tracks. Ditto the request for "See My Way" from the first LP — one of the great rock guitar solos of all time.

Blodwyn Pig!  Great!

My kids think I'm nuts, when I play the other track from this album that I like ... "See My Way" ... which as the album jacket (album jacket?) notes indicated, strikes some folks as having some similarity to Ravel's "Bolero".

Add my thanks to all the thanks below ... and please consider playing "See My Way" sometime ... thanks! 
So great to hear again! Thanks Bill!!
 
main riff is exactly the same as little red rooster
Kudos to RP for playing something so obscure. I have had the album many years-Tull fan here

I bought it right when it was released. This tune is still outstanding. There was only one other track on the LP that I really enjoyed, however, try as I may to be engaged as a listener. I might feel differently now, as my taste—broad as it was back then—is even broader today (especially when it comes to blues).

 
I still have this LP somewhere. I need to dig it out and listen to it again.
