All Your Love (I Miss Loving) — Otis Rush (Cobra, 1958)

All Your Love (I Miss Loving)’ is the third of Otis Rush’s classic Cobra singles to earn Hall of Fame status and the second from the same 1958 session that featured both Rush and Ike Turner on guitar, under the production of Willie Dixon. Rush, then an impassioned young Chicago blues wonder, switched between a rumba beat and a shuffle on the song (in the manner of B.B. King’s 1953 hit ‘Woke Up This Morning’) and its guitar riffs became a Rush signature. Listeners have noted the similarity of ‘All Your Love’ to the Peter Green’s ‘Black Magic Woman,’ a hit for Santana, and it was the obvious inspiration for Bob Dylan’s recent track ‘Beyond Here Lies Nothin’.’
