For the third straight day, we're playing You'll Never Do It Baby, the song composed by two members of the little known UK beat band, The Cops N' Robbers. Today we travel to West Berlin, Germany to hear the most raw, frantic version ever committed to vinyl. The band is The Boots and they released their version in 1965 on Telefunken Records. What a cool label name that is! The Boots seem to have heard both the original version that has a wailing harmonica, and The Pretty Things' version that changes the chorus to a IV-I-IV-V structure. For the record, The Boots were Bob Bresser on bass, Uri Grun on keyboards, Heintz Hoff on drums, Werner Krabble singing and Jurge Schultz-Eckel on guitar.
Until next time, we'll see you On The Flip-Side!
