The song has been described as "deceptively simple" and as "one of the true irreducibles [sic] of the blues, a song so basic and simple it seems like it's existed forever".[1] Jimmy Reed received the sole credit for the song, although one source claimed "like almost all of Reed's pieces and whatever the official credits are, it is an original composition by his wife, Mama Reed".[4] Mama Reed can be heard at the recording session for the song: Unidentified studio voice:[5] What's the name of this? Mama Reed: Uh... Studio voice: "You Got Me Doin' What You Want Me"? Oh yeah... Jimmy Reed: Naw... Mama Reed: "Baby What You Wanna Let Go". Studio voice: No, "Baby What You Want Me to Do". "Baby What You Want Me to Do". Mama & Jimmy Reed: "Baby Why You Wanna Let Go". Mama Reed: Yeah. Jimmy Reed: You could even make it "Why Let Go". Make it short. "Why Let Go". Of note, nowhere in the song do the lyrics "baby what you want me to do" appear, although later cover versions would often wrongly include the phrase in place of the original "baby why you wanna let go". Other versions As with several Jimmy Reed songs, "Baby What You Want Me to Do" had appeal across popular music genres. "The tune was already a barroom staple of blues, country, and rock & roll bands by the early '60s",[1] spawning versions by a variety of blues, R&B, and rock artists. The song continues to be performed and recorded, making it perhaps the most covered of Reed's songs.
