Originally called "Percolator," the title was slightly modified by the producer to tie in with the Twist craze, indicating that this was a record for dancing the twist, even though it was not at all danceable and had nothing to do with The Twist. An instrumental running 2:09, this song was often used by disc jockeys as a bed to provide background music over spoken segments like weather reports and call-ins. Joining Ernie and Wechter in the studio was master guitarist René Hall, Red Callender on bass and Earl Palmer on drums. Wechter later went on to form the Baja Marimba Band. The 'Billy Joe' billed on the Dore record label was a pseudonym for Lew Bedell, the label's owner. Bedell had no involvement in the recording of "Percolator".
