Couldn't agree more with your write-up, "Going All The Way" is one of the greatest singles ever.
I'll never understand how Atco and US radio failed to get behind it. I wore out the grooves of my
first copy of Pebbles 1 playing this track over and over. As you said, perfect !
I know what you mean about The Byrds but I can't think of a Byrds track that has the sheer attack level of "Going All The Way" ... think I'll play it again :)
Oh no, can't bear to watch this record-abuse, I'm not a happy dogg
Other Youtube versions are available, if you care to click on the embedded image while it plays you'll be taken to a YouTube page with links to at least two listenable versions
