 This is the Big Daddy of RGM 60s Beat.

A side is the Ben E King B side of Stand By Me. always dug the Ben E King version. This does a similar arrangement if lacks the intensity of the original. Still a good Soulful Ballad track with atmospheric sound.

B side is Three Fists In Yo' Face tough dirty Mod R&B Garage raver. 'Crawdaddy Simone' is a Bad Ass MoFo Guy as they'd say in the YooEssAye. "He Ain't Got No Friends, He Always Walks Alone" He oughta wash more...

Then the guitar break is the most ugly dirty snarling ugly nasty mess on any record. Maxed out distortion by a very manic Joey boy. The sound is mostly the production done through much tinkering.

To hear the UK original played directly is quite an experience... The video below sounds good.

 fascinating Top 150 Wanted list, esp The King Brothers & a Beatles EP that doesn't exist. Mostly Rock-Pop artists, a tiny few R&B Northern but no Reggae! Seems like a 'wish' list too, some of those 45s are out of most buyer's league now. Explains why the repros are popular too.

Top 500 would be even more interesting...

 Without wishing to denigrate the astonishing production and freakbeat guitar on the B side, it does seem a little too close for comfort to the tune/chords of Chuck Berry's "Almost Grown".

 Killer double sider imo. I reckon it's almost a shame Crawdaddy is so attention grabbing, in that it overshadows a brilliantly atmospheric latter day RGM production.
