THE KINGSMEN - LOUIE LOUIE



THE KINGSMEN - 'Louie Louie' / 'Haunted Castle' (Pye International 7N.25231) December 1963

Here's a pic of my UK copy of The Kingsmen 45 'Louie Louie', such an iconic record and one that influenced the young Ray Davies. In USA it was released on Jerden Records a few months earlier.

'Louie Louie' is primitive with echoed guitar and organ bursts....when frat turned into what we now know as the 'garage sound' The flip is also good if you dig crude instros.

The single reached #26 in the British charts.
