From (approximately) 2006, please enjoy Waddy Wachtel and Friends -- with special guest frontman Keith Allison -- stomping their way, authoritatively, through Elvis Costello's "Pump It Up."
Yes, Keith Allison. The Texas-born Paul McCartney look-alike who was briefly a teen idol on TV's Where the Action Is, and who later did a stint in Paul Revere and the Raiders.
And who made this absolutely killer single in early 1967.
"Louise" has an interesting provenance, by the way. It was written by Jesse Kincaid, who -- along with Taj Mahal and Ry Cooder -- was a member of The Rising Sons, perhaps the great lost American rock band of the mid-60s. And the backing track to Allison's version is identical to the one that appears (with vocal by Mark Lindsay) on the Raider's classic The Spirit of '67 album.
In any case, I had long assumed that Allison ended his career toiling in country music, like so many of his contemporaries, so what a delightful surprise to see that he remained a rocker at heart.
Seriously -- we should all kick such major ass thirty or forty years down the line.
