Songfacts®:

  • Like "Woodpecker," this uptempo number is an original Berry instrumental. It was released in May 1964 as the B Side of the extremely well known "No Particular Place To Go"; Chuck was never a fretboard wizard, so there is nothing here that would frighten Ritchie Blackmore, Eric Clapton or Edward Van Halen, although it is worth bearing in mind that but for Berry it is quite likely that none of them would ever have picked up a guitar in the first place. >>
