Flash forward a few years, and we find Knight in the studio aping the sounds of The Sir Douglas Quintet on a record that was a complete exploitation not only of the SDQ sound, but also the rampant psychedelic culture of the time (summer of 1967). While the song was cut the previous year by Dino, Desi & Billy, the Power Plant version ups the ante of drug culture by replacing the line "make me flip" (as heard on the original) with "make me trip". Plus, "Power Plant" itself undoubtedly refers to pot, and Texas psych maniacs The Golden Dawn also used the name "Power Plant" for their '67 LP, with an album cover depicting neon painted marijuana and psylocybin mushrooms.
The Monkees also cut a version of this a few months prior during their first play-their-own instruments "Headquarters" sessions; sadly, only an instrumental backing exists, as they never cut vocals for the track.
While this record may be a sham, it's a damn good one; it swings like a mo-fo!
