We danced to that song all night at D-Street on Division. The cover bands would usually end with Louie Louie.

A video made last year (March, 2009) when they were on AM Northwest- KATU:

I was attending Centennial High School in the early 1960's when I first met Norm Sundholm who played bass guitar with The Kingsmen from 1963 to 1967. Norm was a Freshman and I was about to graduate at the time. We played guitars one time in the schools band room. Great memory!

That Wand label 45 is cool enough (got a copy myself), though the repro on it is less than stellar. But doesn't Dirty Dave have the ORIGINAL pressing? As I understand it, "Louie Louie" was first issued on one of Jerden's local or regional labels, then went national on Wand. (The Wand 45 bears a Columbia pressing matrix, and halfway through it the sound gets muffled.)
