[Track B1 is influenced & taken from the 'catfish blues' work 'Cat Squirrel' by Dr. Isaiah Ross, a renowned 'one man band' artist in the Mississippi delta blues tradition. Ross died in May 1993. Dr. Isaiah Ross* - Call The Doctor].

The band began recording at Rayrik Studios in London's Chalk Farm in the summer of 1966 (from which Wrapping Paper and The Coffee Song resulted). The core of the album work was completed at Ryemuse Studios, South Molton St., London in Sep-Nov '66 - with Timperley engineering at both studios.
