THE BOBBIES - She Put Me Down #2 (Sonny)

Wild Alabama Frat SoundsThe idea may sound boring: You have no ideas for you 45 flipside, but you gotta record right NOW, so just belch out some kind of "part two" of your topside. Could be a pretty dull thing, but not on this fine 1966 piece of wax. Topside kicks ass (check out STRANGE WORLDS#3), but the flip is even weirder: A cacophony of teenage wacko-ness, live onto tape. I'd like to know what the guys in the recording studio thought about this. From Florence, AL. Go go go!
Some additional info that was posted as a comment:
Glenn Hall - Bass
Donald "Duck" Heupel - Guitar
Richard Haun or Hann - Keyboard
Randy Whales - Drummers
Bobby Heathcoat - Vocals/howling

This was recorded at Sun Recording studio in Memphis, TN in 1966 by Judd Phillips (Sam Phillips brother). (She) Put Me Down was a Jerry Lee Lewis song that was sold to Sun records.
Jerry Wexler wanted to buy this song performed by “The Bobbies” but problems with their producer caused this to never happen.
The original side b was suppose to be an amped up version of "I Call Your Name" by The Beatles but on the 2 hour drive to the studio, they heard The Mamas & the Papas cover this on the radio. They came up with side 2 on the fly.
