Georgie Fame - Beware Of The Dog (1967)

In the early sixties,
Georgie Fame had come up through London clubs playing a distinctive blend of R&B, jazz, ska and rock & roll .

This swingin' and supremely catchy instrumental was released on the B-side of Fame's big hit single of 1967, 'The Ballad Of Bonnie & Clyde' - - his only top ten charting 45 in the U.S.

Could the "Mike Smith" who produced be the Mike Smith who sang lead for the Dave Clark Five?
