An Early (And Surprisingly Posh) Clue to the New Direction

From 1975, please enjoy Godfather of the British Blues Scene Alexis Korner and a very sophisticated, even actorly take on the Rolling Stones' "Get Off of My Cloud." With endearingly nasal background vocals and guitar by some guy named Keith something or other.

Obviously, this isn't quite as epochal as the original, but there's something very charming and deadpan droll about it, I think, and I've been meaning to post it since forever.

In any case, a coveted PowerPop No-Prize will be awarded to the first reader who gleans the clip's relevance to the theme of tomorrow's Weekend Listomania.
