Everybody knows "Shakin' All Over". The first version I heard the Who's, from Live at Leeds. You probably know it. It's a mutha. Then I heard the Guess Who's, which predated the Who's by about four years and was a minor hit in the U.S. in 1965. I didn't hear it until later, played on oldies stations. The next version I heard was Johnny Kidd's original, I didn't need to go further. 1960, as it was meant to be heard.
Tonight, study hall was on. I finally decided to school myself on Johnny Kidd, the damn eye patch and everything. Then I decided to look for other covers and.., just forget it. There's too many. I have other goofing off to get to.
