Notes

Lead vocals - Weir.

Based on KC Lovin' by Little Willie Littlefield (1952)

Wilbert Harrison wanted to cover KC Lovin' but his record company was not interested. He then recorded it as Kansas City with a different company. Follow up singles by Harrison included Kansas City Twist and Goodbye Kansas City.
