Feelin'

Robinson-Heath, 1959.  Recorded: 02-11-59

Johnny Kidd (vocals) - Mike West, Tom Brown (backing Vocals) - Alan Caddy (lead) - Tony Doherty (rhythm) - Johnny Gordon (bass) - Brian Unknown - (drums)

Criminally, this ended up on the B-side to the second single, the ballad "If You Were The Only Girl In The World".  That in itself encapsulates HMV's (and more to the point, Wally Ridley's) lack of understanding of what the band were all about.  "Feelin" demonstrates Johnny's developing theme that leads up to the following year's "Shakin' All Over".   Features the famous Bert "Play In A Day" Weedon supplying the lead guitar licks.
