Track by Track Review
This simple and totally cool intro was penned by Hollywood legend and weirdo Kim Fowley and future Byrds member Skip Batten. It's part piano rock, part organ rock, and it has all the coolness and energy of B. Bumble and the Stingers and Johnny and the Hurricanes.
Rockin' drums and bass thunder with saloon piano fire a la B. Bumble and the Stingers. The melody riff is lifted from Neil Hefty's "Bat Man." A sax break rasps the mid section, along with Jerry Lee Lewis style piano.
