Lyrics of this type already had a long history. The reference to "Dan" alternatively, "Jim Dandy" dates back at least to minstrel shows in the nineteenth century, and double-entendre had been used in blues lyrics for decades before the song was written.
A common reference was to "Dan, the Back Door Man"—the lover of a married woman who would leave her house by the back door—as in a song of that title recorded by Georgia White in However, in hindsight it was an important record in several respects: it crossed the boundaries between gospel singing and blues , its lyrics pushed the limits of what was deemed acceptable, and it appealed to many white as well as black listeners, peaking at 17 on the pop charts.
Cover versions were made by several white artists including Hardrock Gunter. In later years, the Dominoes' record became a contender for the title of "the first rock and roll record ".

We tend to remember the events more than we do the people, because we usually have much more knowledge about the "event" than we do about the people. It's a hard and narrow line to walk, because the navigation is not always clear.
That accomplishment is an event that will be duly noted in history. However my feeling about Ed Bradley will always be that it was his interest in being a "student of the Blues" and his understanding of how those cultural, musical and historical dots were all connected, somehow helped him to navigate what surely must have been a difficult path. I'm sure that tonight there are "older Black men" sitting in their pick up trucks, drinking Jack Daniels from paper cups hoisting a few in the name of Ed Bradley.
I'm sure that they are talking about the fact that Ed Bradley was a fan of Blues music , they are smiling and they are proud, because they know that it's part of what made Ed Bradley a "60 Minute Man". Because he was a "60 Minute Man", he could "go the distance". And if Ed Bradley, a kid from the Philadelphia ghetto could "go the distance", then the rest of us don't really have any excuses. They call me lovin' Dan. I'll rock 'em, roll 'em all night long I'm a 60 minute man.
And if you don't believe I'm all I say, Come up and take my hand. Well if your man ain't treatin' you right Come up and see your Dan. Oh yeah! If you have any comments, questions, etc feel free to drop me an email and let me know what's on your mind.
