Haven't seen the ad. Know the song well. Do yourself a favor and pick
up The Creation's anthology "Our music is red -- with purple flashes"
on eBay or elsewhere. It's their entire recorded output, 24 tracks.
You'll be stunned at how much they sound like early Who (or vice
versa), plus you'll hear bits reminiscent of early Beatles plus the
invention of the guitar solo with violin bow, which Jimmy Page later
nicked. Mandatory listening for anyone interested in mod/freakbeat.
