Two versions of "Louie Go Home" were issued. The original (with sax opening) was only released as a single. A re-recorded version (with guitar opening) was featured on the Midnight Ride album in 1966 as well as the group's first Greatest Hits compilation the following year.
In 1964 the young David Bowie, then still called David Jones, recorded the song with his band Davie Jones and the King Bees. He titled it "Louie, Louie Go Home" and released it as the B-side of Bowie's first ever single, "Liza Jane". Bowie's version of the song also appeared on the compilations Another Face (1981) and Early On (1964-1966) (1991).
A French version was released in 1964 as "Louie Reviens Chez Toi" by the Belgian group Ariane et Les 10/20.
