Complete your Knights Of Day collection. A. Everybody Needs Somebody To Love. Written-By – Russell, Wexler, Burke.
Recently I was contacted by Knights Of Day bassist Jim Murphy and he kindly filled me in with accurate information about his largely overlooked mid 60s band. Three teenagers from Long Beach, California, named Ron Eglit (lead guitar), Barry Greenberg (rhythm guitar) and Chuck Letzelter drums) got together and started practicing their instruments in Ron's garage. This was early 1965 and they were all pretty much knocked out by the Brit Invasion groups and like many US teens during that period in time decided to form a Rock 'N' Roll combo to impress the girls. This is a solid garage style cover of 'Everybody Needs Somebody To Love' with cool clattering tambourine throughout, chunky bass runs and punk guitar. As with most Tower releases, the music is also very well produced and engineered. The flip 'Why Do You Treat Me So Bad' is currently uncompiled.
Wilson Pickett covered Everybody Needs Somebody to Love for his 1966 album, The Wicked Pickett. That same album included his covers of Mustang Sally, Knock On Wood, and Time Is On My Side. Pickett brought back the horns that The Rolling Stones had removed. Burke had sung the song like he was at church, and Mick Jagger had sung the song like he was casually jamming in a friend’s basement, but Pickett sang like he was performing a rock song in a rock club. He brought the same spirit to it that he brought to his cover of Land of a Thousand Dances.
