The sessions only took off on the second day, when resident Elektra guitarist Lonnie Mack joined in on bass and ex- Lovin' Spoonful frontman John Sebastian contributing harmonica (appearing under the pseudonym G. Puglese either out of loyalty to his recording contract [3] or to avoid affiliation with The Doors after the infamous Miami controversy) joined in on the sessions and Manzarek switched from his Wurlitzer electric piano to a tack piano (the same used on The Beach Boys " Good Vibrations "). [4] A studio version of the song with John Lee Hooker sharing vocals with Morrison can be found on the Stoned Immaculate: The Music of The Doors album.

The origins of this track date back to the early 1970s, when Status Quo heard the Doors track Roadhouse Blues in a club and adopted its chugging rhythm as a template for much of their early self-penned material. Roadhouse Blues itself had been recorded by Quo in 1972 on the Piledriver album and, with vocals by bassist Alan Lancaster , was a staple of the band's live set for many years. By 1976's " Status Quo Live! " album the song had been extended to more than twelve minutes in duration, featuring a lengthy middle section in which parts of a traditional Irish jig , " Irish Washer Woman " were played.
