Charlie Segar's original "Key to the Highway" was done in the form of a mid-tempo twelve-bar blues. When Jazz Gillum recorded it later that year, the song became an eight-bar blues, as it is usually known (May 9, 1940 Bluebird B 8529). Eight of Segar's song performances appear on the compilation album Piano Blues, Vol. 2: 1927-1956.[2] Segar's version of Key to the Highway appears on Chicago Blues 1940 - 1947[3] Read more on Last.fm.
