The Call Of The Beaver Patrol
by V. T. Sherman – is available to buy from Amazon…

I knew that this Soup Dragons tune was a rework of this Stones obscurity, and the bass line on this nineties floor-filler was lifted from this sixties soundtrack.

PWEI – Beaver Patrol

Was a cover of this….

Wilde Knights – ‘Beaver Patrol*

*mis-spelt as ‘Beaver Control’ by the ripping software. My favourite example of rock typo’s in my MP3 collection is The Sweet’s ‘Burn On The Flame’ re-titled by the Russian download service ALLOFMP3 to ‘BUM On The Flame‘ – ouch!!
