Oh man, I love that version too. I always thought the Beatles' version was lame after hearing this one but most Beatles' fans didn't even know it existed. Listen to his solos on most of the other Larry Williams stuff too, like 'Bony Marony'. Also the Routers' 'Let's Go!'.

The guy was absolutely one of a kind - nobody will ever get that sound or have that style again. I guess everybody knows he used a 160/0 Berg with a Plasticover baritone reed, #1 1/2. He also put Vaseline on the table before mounting the reed. Unknown if this was for sealing or corrosion protection because he had so many sessions that the reed might stay mounted for days. Probably a little of both. I've never tried that myself but I might just to see if the reeds play better.
