I'd love to know some more about the history of this recording because I believe it took place after a drinking session that culminated in the hilarious Fu ckin' Andrew spoof.

I never heard of Gene Pitney playing the organ before so I guess it turned into a free for all after they got back from the pub. Odd to have 2 organs on one song in 64 - eat ya heart out Keith Emerson and Rick Wakeman.

Anyway, great little 12 bar blues that coasts along neatly and sounds great motorvatin' around in the summertime.

Charming early showcase for their instrumental talents.

I have doubts that it's Brian on harmonica, but if it is then it's probably the least inspired harmonica playing he ever committed to tape.
