Soul’s Best Screamer?

When I say screamer I don’t mean a powerhouse gospel styled shouter

I mean an actual scream

The contenders:

James Brown: as Eddie Murphy once said, to James a scream was a lyric

Wilson Pickett: in the liner notes of one of my Pickett CDs someone said that “James Brown screamed screams, Wilson Pickett screamed notes”

David Ruffin: he didn’t do it nearly as often as the other two but he used it to devastating effect to perfectly punctuate a song. I also think that no matter how well you can sing a proper Ruffin scream is a whole different talent

Who else comes to mind?

An "I like another rendition better" thread

There are some cuts that we have heard so much of songs and then there are other versions/interpretations of those same songs, done by other performers perhaps, or by the same act as the one we heard a lot - but in another arrangement, tempo, possibly with new performers within the act adding something to the song that wasn't there before...etc...

I'd like to try this... What are some other but less played renditions of well known songs that you like better?

So... I'll start (and leave for the wings to see what you guys perhaps might make of this topic :) ). I like this one better than Joe Cocker's so frequently played recording.
