Shakin’ All Over

“Shakin’ All Over” is a song originally performed by Johnny Kidd & the Pirates. The song was written by frontman Johnny Kidd, and his recording of it reached number one on the UK Singles Chart in August 1960. The original recording was not a hit outside of Europe.

In the USA “Shakin’ All Over” is better known in versions by other artists. In 1964 a local band from Plattsburgh, NY called the Twiliters recorded a live version of it. It did well in New England but did not chart nationally.  A 1965 cover by The Guess Who reached #1 in Canada, and also top 40 in the US and Australia.

I think this is a great “garage band” tune that works very well as an instrumental.
