Track by Track Review
This is a very fun riff rocker on the gimmicky side, with mama laughing and a great bass line. Some cool whammy guitar borders on surf. Fresno's exceptional Jim Doval and the Gauchos cut this under two titles, "Don't Tickle Mama" and "Scrub." Jerry Reed may have played guitar on this recording.
