  1. “They used to open with “I Like Girls” [later recorded for Big Beat] at the Whiskey A Go Go in ’72…It was suppose to be on the fourth LP but the split with the Mankey brothers put the song on hold….with other great tunes such as “She’s Getting Funnier” and “We Make Great Pets”…man I wish there was demos to those tunes….” – JustineLaLoba, YouTube
