A blues classic that is one of the most covered songs in music, “Baby Please Don’t Go” was a folk song that was passed around for several generations before it was first recorded by Big Joe Williams in 1935. His version became a big commercial hit and exposed the song to countless ears, paving the way for it to become the blues and rock standard that it is.

Here are several notable versions of the song, including the original.
