5) LONG TALL SALLY Little Richard

Storming, and 'cause I love his boots. I love his big suit too, and I love him. We met him in Hamburg, he's classic. This record just thrilled me to my boots.


4) SEARCHIN' The Coasters

Magic, magic record. We couldn't figure out how they'd done it. And we all thought they were black, that was the other thing. [Er, sorry to interrupt Sir, but The Coasters were black.]


3) GIVE PEACE A CHANCE John Lennon & The Plastic Ono Band

For its vibe, for its sentiment, and for its vocalist. He had a copy, played it to me and I was just blown away by the rhythm section of everyone stompin'. It's just so John, y'know?


2) AIN'T THAT A SHAME Fats Domino

He's a classic and when we met him in New Orleans he showed us his big diamond watch. That's enough for me.


1) PROUD MARY Creedence Clearwater Revival
That was another one where I thought, Oh gosh what a wonderful black group. When I found out they were white chappies I was most amazed. [Dont worry, Sir P, youre right this time].
