Hip City, Pt. 1 - Jr. Walker & The All Stars, 1968 flip-side of Hip City, Pt. 2 (#31) - The Motown brain trust picked Part II to be the plug side because it mentions "Detroit" in its roll call of "hip cities." Tonight we hear the non-charting flipside!

Green Tambourine - The Lemon Pipers, 1966 #1 ("One of the factors that is wrong about the stereo version is the intro. In mono, the rhythm track dominates the mix (and rightly so), whereas in stereo it’s almost drowned out by the lead guitar part, which reduces it to a pinprick.” – Peter Elliott, Both Sides Now Stereo Chat Group. Tonight we hear the mono 45.)

The above 3 are censored versions of the LP tracks:

"Compared..." - 5 loud, annoying beeps to cover up the lyric "goddamn it".  No wonder this tanked on the Hot 100...

"Say Goodbye" - a quick edit on the word "shit", making it just "sh".

"Good Girls Don't" - replaced the line "sitting on your face" with "puts you in your place".  In the 70's???
