Notes

Lead vocals - Weir.

In his autobiography, I Am The Blues, Willie Dixon says;

""Wang Dang Doodle" meant a good time. especially if a guy came in from the South. A wang dang meant having a ball and a lot of dancing, they called it a rocking style so that's what it meant to wang dang doodle."
