I am fairly sure Johnny Kidd wrote it, so his version is the original (recorded in 1959). Oddly enough, Mick Green didn't play on the recording, as it was before he joined the band. The guitar parts were all played by a bloke called Joe Moretti, who was the first guitarist in The Pirates, and I believe also a session musician. It took at least another five years after it was recorded for everyone to find and cover it.

Normie Rowe. My old man got a bit upset with him when he used "Shakin' All Over" in that ad for Coles (or was it Woolies?) supermarkets the other year. I think Dad enjoyed playing that song, but he thought it was cheapened by Normie's ad. It was also a bit surprising that Normie would have done an ad like that too, which I think Dad found disappointing. I can well remember him saying he couldn't believe Normie would sell-out like that. I was a bit surprised by it too, I have to admit.

I'm way too young for Surf City (and in the wrong state), but I would have loved to have seen Billy Thorpe with his original Aztecs live. I think Vince Melouney who was with the original Aztecs and later the Bee Gees is still gigging, the others having long since retired from the music industry.
