God bless The New York Dolls. They couldn’t have picked a more perfect song to cover. I never heard Archie Bell’s version when it peaked (’69). I just found a copy at a record stall and figured it’d be fun to have. They made a bunch of good singles, but how do you top ‘Tighten Up’?

A very good way to spend 50¢.
