BETTER THAN BOSS?

The Rumblers' "Boss" is one of my favorite instrumentals of all time, by a band that named themselves after a song by the Great One, and recorded in the same studio, attached to a record store, that the Chantays recorded "Pipeline" in. Need I go further? Listen to it. It is most wicked. You will understand why I was elated to run across "I Don't Need You No More", a vocal number and the B-side of "Boss", at On the Flip-Side. After digging that one, I figured, what the hell, and finally decided to look for "Caterpillar Crawl" by the Strangers, the song that "Boss" is based on. It's even more wicked. It's more boss than "Boss". They don't even have a word for it; that's how baddass it is.
