I had a couple of hours to kill this afternoon, and I’ve been thinking about doing this 1966 garage rock classic by The Count Five for a while, so I dove in. I went after the loose feel of the original, so I kept the takes to a minimum and let a few clams slide. I also got to drag out one of my old blues harps and just wailed away. This is the result. You should turn it up.

And yes, I did nick the ending from The Yardbirds’ ‘I’m A Man,’ which is fair considering Count Five nicked that entire rave-up section from The Yardbirds.
