Written by Leiber, Stoller & Pomus – wow. That would be like a song being written by Lennon, McCartney & Dylan. I can definitely see why they enjoyed covering this one.

One of my favourite of their Coasters covers, but it would’ve been nice if Ringo had been given one of the chorus’ 4-solo-bits to sing, so we could hear the four different voices in turn (as in the original.) Or maybe he could’ve done the “leave my daughter alone” bit; neither of these were beyond his abilities. But I guess the BBC sessions left no time for extra-complicated arrangements…

Yeah, I’d guess they worked it as a three-part vocal when doing it live, leaving Pete out, and just stuck with that arrangement when they pulled it out for the BBC.

Those Coasters funny-voice bits such as in “Searchin” and “Three Cool Cats” were great vehicles for the boys to Goon it up in their own fashion

Paul: Yeah well… first of all, we’re bringing out a ‘Stamp Out Detroit’ campaign.
