It's a groovy groovy thing, the call of the wild
Been sittin' on this one for minute. I picked this up just based on the fact it's arranged and produced by Allen Toussaint and the song shares its name with one of my favorite books, I had no idea who Dan Patrick was when I purchased the record for $3.00. The reason for not putting this song up sooner is because I was trying to find some, any, information on who Dan Patrick was or is. I turned up absolutely nothing. No copies of the record have turned up on eBay since I purchased this one, no blogs (as far as I know) have ever featured this track, and there is absolutely no information about the record other than it was released in 1967. I wish I knew more because this song rips so unbelievably hard. Kind of odd for a Toussaint production, no? If any of my readers (do I have readers?) have some leads please post 'em up.
