Please Don't Touch

(version 2) Heath-Robinson, 1990 (stereo).  Recorded: 07-04-64

Johnny Kidd (voc) - Mick Green (lead) - Johnny Spence (bass) - Frank Farley (drums) - Vic Cooper (keyboards)

A harder-edged re-make of the original 1959 classic, sounding more in line with the times.  This recorded version is slightly slower that the energetic original version, and the middle section ("I don't know why she dug her claws in me," etc) was axed completely to allow room for Mick Green's soloing.  Although more in keeping with the band's contemporary onstage sound, comparison to the classic 1959 cut makes this recording sound a little lacklustre - unfairly. Had this been the only version, who knows?

 
(Don't touch me baby 'cos I shake so much)
(Don't touch me baby 'cos I shake so much)


Well there ain't no other woman that makes me feel this way
(Don't touch me baby 'cos I shake so much)
When
she comes up close, I just ain't got a word to say
(Don't touch me baby 'cos I shake so much)
Please don't touch, I shake so mu
ch
Please don't touch, I shaaaa-aaake so-o much!

(Don't touch me baby 'cos I shake so much)
(Don't touch me baby 'cos I shake so much)

Well I get so nervous when I see her eyes that shine
(Don't touch me baby 'cos I shake so much)
Cos she looks right through me and the chills run down my spine
(Don't touch me baby 'cos I shake so much)
Please don't touch, I shake so much
Please don't touch, I shaaaa-aaake so-o much!

(instrumental break)

Please don't touch, I shake so much
Please don't touch, I shaaaa-aaake so-o much!

(Don't touch me baby 'cos I shake so much)
Well, come on baby, you make me shake but I like it baby
Aaawww, you make me shake itnow, Aaaawww
(fade to end)
