Song Of The Day – “Hot Rod High” by The Knights
Here’s a follow up to yesterday’s post by The Super Stocks. Once again, it’s Gary Usher and company from 1964 giving The Beach Boys a run for their money. The song was even co-written by Beach Boys collaborator Roger Christian. The expert backing was provided by The Wrecking Crew including Glen Campbell and Tommy Tedesco on guitars, Leon Russell on keyboards and Hal Blaine on drums whose work can be heard on hundreds of ’60s hits. This song was also recorded by The Hondells, The Super Stocks and The Surfaris…probably using the very same backing track.
