John Viehweg stopped by long enough to suggest the cabasa, and remind Brian to tune the Rickenbacker, which was graciously lent to us by "Mambo" John Treanor..

Of course, we stole the middle section of My Train... from the Beatles. If anyone anywhere plays this on the radio, be SURE to send Northern Songs a nickel each time.
