“Give Me Back My Wig” was originally performed by Theodore Roosevelt “Hound Dog” Taylor. Stevie Ray Vaughan, along with his band Double Trouble, rocked the Montreux Jazz Festival with their own rendition of the song.

According to Wikipedia, Jerry Wexler referred to SRV as “a jewel, one of those rarities who comes along once in a lifetime.”
