Sonny Boy Williamson II recorded it inbut the song was not released until Led Zeppelin adapted it in part as a homage to Williamson in and subsequently, the song has been recorded by several artists.
Sonny Boy Williamson recorded the song on January 11, in Chicago. He alternates his vocal sections with harmonica phrases, accompanied by Matt "Guitar" Murphy on guitar, Milton Rector on bass guitar, Al Moby Dick - Led Zeppelin - Bring It On Home on drums, and either Lafayette Leake or Billy Emerson on organ.
AllMusic reviewer Bill Janovitz describes Williamson's harp playing as "subdued" and his vocal delivery as "smooth": "The swinging music chugs like a train, a feeling it is supposed to evoke for the lyrics. I done bought my ticket, I got my load Conductor done hollered, 'All, aboard' Take my seat and ride way back And watch this Moby Dick - Led Zeppelin - Bring It On Home move down the track I'm gonna bring it on home to you" .
Chess subsidiary Checker Records also released it as a single,  but it did not reach the record charts. The intro and outro were deliberate homages to the Sonny Boy Williamson song, whereas the rest of the track was an original composition by Jimmy Page and Robert Plant. The band went on tour with the master tapes for Led Zeppelin II and recorded parts in various studios. Led Zeppelin frequently performed this song live at Led Zeppelin concertsfirst appearing as an encore on the band's UK tour.
When played live, the song exhibited sharp interplay between Page's guitar, John Bonham 's drums and John Paul Jones ' bass. Fromthe song was dropped from the band's live set list. However, the middle section riff was retained and served as the introduction to " Black Dog " on the band's Take A Chance On Me - A*Teens - The ABBA Generation of the United Statesas documented in the concert film The Song Remains the Same.
