Notes on the tracks
The Northwest is "Louie Louie" country, and three different versions are included here, including a cover of a follow-up song by Paul Revere & the Raiders. The Wilde Knights are well known for the widely reissued "Beaver Patrol" (featured on Pebbles, Volume 1 and Essential Pebbles, Volume 1, among others); this song is from their follow-up single. However, these Squires are not the same band as the legendary group, the Squires from Bristol, CT.
