So, I never knew the name of the group that wrote this tune, and with good reason: it’s friggin’ ridiculous. Wikipedia informs me that it comes from the Fancy Cat name (what) of the manager’s friend’s cat. Man, the 60s were NUTS.

Anyway, this is just one of those classic songs that will continue on and on as a bastion of superb song writing and performing. Consequently, it’s also one of those songs that’s going to be covered. Badly. But you certainly can’t go past that sumptuous combination of organ, bass and wonderful vocals, can you?
