The Amboy Dukes & Ted Nugent - Baby Please Don't Go (1967)

The Amboy Dukes & Ted Nugent WLCY Radio Hits
"Baby, Please Don't Go" is a blues song that has been called "one of the most played, arranged, and rearranged pieces in blues history" by French music historian Gérard Herzhaft. Delta blues musician Big Joe Williams popularized the song with several versions beginning in 1935.

In the 1960s, "Baby, Please Don't Go" became a popular rock song after the Northern Irish group Them recorded it in 1964. Several music writers have identified Jimmy Page, a studio guitarist at the time, as participating in the recording, although his exact contributions are unclear. Subsequently, Them's uptempo rock arrangement also made it a rock standard. AC/DC, Aerosmith, and The Amboy Dukes are among the rock groups who have recorded the song. "Baby, Please Don't Go" has been inducted into both the Blues and Rock and Roll Halls of Fame.
