  • Possibly much more interesting to Bowie-ists is the B side, "Louie Louie Go Home," recorded during the same seven-hour session at Decca's West Hampstead studios in the spring of 1964. Although it is technically a cover of an homage to a cover (the King Bees doing Paul Revere and the Raiders name-checking the Kingsmen's totemic version of "Louie, Louie"), it's valuable, as you can actually listen to David playing with his voice, experimenting as he goes, hitting weird high notes that will show up a decade later on "Young Americans" and "Golden Years."
