Shakin' All Over '65

(or, version 2) Heath, 1965 (mono), 1992 (stereo).  Recorded: 20-04-65

Johnny Kidd (voc) - John Weider (lead) - Johnny Spence (bass) - Frank Farley (drums) - Vic Cooper (keyboards)

Comparatively speaking, this barnstorming remake of their number one from five years previous bears little relation and can be taken as a good indicator of how the whole field of pop music making had changed in that time.  The original displays a cool sound whereas this later attempt at returning to the charts - a great version had the original never existed - is an out and out heavy rocker with indications of the sound of future rock.

 
Aaah, when you move in right up close to me
That's when I get the shakes all over me
Quivers down my backbone
I got the shakes in my kneebone
Yeah, have the tremors in the thighbone
Shakin' all over

Just the way you say goodnight to me
Brings that feeling all inside of me
Quivers down my backbone
I got the shakes in my kneebone
Yeah, have the tremors in the thighbone
I'm shakin' all over

(instrumental break)

Quivers down my backbone
I got the shakes in my kneebone
Yeah, the tremors in the thighbone
I'm shakin' all over

Ah now, you make me shake it but I like it baby
Aw, you make me shake it I just like it baby
Shake, shake, ahhh shake, shake
(improvise to end)
