Here's Clifton Chenier doing a bang up job with Slim Harpo's "Baby, Scratch My Back" on his "Keep On Scratching". With that title, he's not really hiding anything, and it's not as if he didn't put his own stamp on it. Chenier was something akin to the Chuck Berry of zydeco, in as much as he music was a template that others built on. Harpo was much the same for laid back electric blues. What I found most remarkable is the fact that Harpo's original was actually #91 on Billboards Top 100 of 1966. (To give you an idea of what makes the charts these days, take a look at the 2012 list. Blecch.) Anywho, dig these.
