Comment:

I think there was a commercial release along similar lines to this, but these were mostly taped off the radio during the great KALX/KFJC competition for world's longest on-air "Louie Louie"
marathon, & many of these performances are from bands that were formed during the marathons purely
in order to record Louie Louie & get on the air before it was over. I forget which station finally won, but it was great while it lasted.

They should have played the Robert Plant version from the Wayne's World 2 soundtrack.

LET'S GIVE IT 'EM RIGHT NOW! After seeing this mix, I feel obliged to point you and others to the fine site by a swell Flamin' Groovies lovin' pal,Eric Predoehl. He is in the process of creating a great documentary on the song "Louie, Louie". In the meantime he has created a web site that is filled with all the facts and excellent discography. www.louielouie.net

sure, west coast pop art & many many others -- it would be a shorter list to try to identify the bands that havent' covered it . . .

I always thought that either the Kingsmen or Motorhead was the definitive version, but now I've seen this and seen how little I know I am not so sure. What do you reckon?

How in the world did you find the Tulsa City Trucker version? The only recording that I am aware of came from a live radio show on WCBN in Ann Arbor.

I'm surprised this doesn't have the Beach Boys version (It is, however, a rather weak track from them).
