In the US, where the Yardbirds still had a strong live performance presence, the song was released as a single with "Drinking Muddy Water", a tribute/spin-off to Muddy Waters' "Rollin' and Tumblin'" (from the Little Games album) as the B-side. The single was the group's last to reach Billboard magazine's Hot 100, appearing at number 96. The song was later included on the popular Yardbirds' bootleg Golden Eggs (1975), the expanded Little Games Sessions & More (1992), and the comprehensive career retrospective Ultimate! (2001).
In an album review of Sessions and More, AllMusic critic Dave Thompson describes the Yardbirds' rendition as "what was otherwise a preposterous addition to the Yardbirds' repertoire is, in fact, the most fascinating track on the entire album." Thompson, Yardbirds' chronicler Gregg Russo, and music critic Cub Koda each note Page's inventive multitrackedfeedback guitar parts as a major contribution to the recording.
