Anyone as old as me will remember the AM gold that was Crazy Elephants "Gimmie Gimmie Good Love" and while the below my be true. The B side here is a far cry from "Bubble Gum" music, more like a Blue Cheer bad acid trip... Super fuzzy wha wha guitars squanking and soloing over some "dark" lyrics about "spirits going by me, in the dark part of my mind".....

"Crazy Elephant was one of the seemingly endless aliases employed by the Kasenetz-Katz production duo to market their bubblegum hits of the late 1960s. Primarily a vehicle for session vocalist Robert Spencer — previously known for his performance with the Cadillacs' post "Speedo" — Crazy Elephant was the name appended to the Kasenetz-Katz production of the song "Gimme Gimme Good Lovin'"; after the master was rejected by Buddah Records, the Super K Productions duo's primary outlet, they instead shopped the track to the Bell label, for whom it fell just shy of the U.S. Top Ten in 1969. Despite the single's success, however, Crazy Elephant failed to reach the charts again, instead becoming yet another interchangeable cog in the Kasenetz-Katz hit machine."
