Title: Horace the Swingin' School Bus Driver

Listening to the Fantastic Baggys 'instrumental' Horace the Swingin' School Bus Driver (more like a demo background tape to me) it sound SO different from Jan and Dean's version that I guess Jan arranged and produced a completely different version. Did the FBs ever do a vocal version? The theme would suggest that it was written specifically for Jan and Dean and seems to have Jan's influence across the whole track.
Always one of  my favourite Jan arrangements. Great drumming.

One of my favorite J&D recordings in many respects.  The vocal and instrumental arrangements are great, and the Jan & Dean irreverence that marked many of their recordings is here in full force.
