As for "Farmer John," the Premiers added some raw garage-rock attitude to the song and made it a hit. The Premiers were a Mexican-American band out of East Los Angeles. They formed in 1962, consisting of brothers Lawrence and John Perez (guitar and drums, respectively) and their neighbors George Delgado (guitar) and Frank Zuniga (bass). The mother of the Perez brothers encouraged their ambitions and got them an audition with record producer Billy Cardenas. The Premiers never again troubled the charts; Farmer John Live was their only album. A group called the Tidal Waves took this song to in 1966. Neil Young did an ass-stomping version of this song (minus the fake crowd noise) for his 1990 album Ragged Glory. The B-side to the Premiers "Farmer John" single was "Duffy's Blues. More songs from The Premiers. More songs from one-hit wonders.
Although the parenthetical title of this disc claims it was documented "live" and even gives February 29th (must have been a leap year), 1964, as the date, Farmer John is, in reality, a studio recording with copious - perhaps too much so - sound effects added for ambience. The title track was originally by the R&B duo Don & Dewey, although it was the Premiers who were able to make a Top 20 hit in the summer of 1964 - a rare feat during the burgeoning British Invasion
