Whilst treading the boards in Hamburg, The band  backed JERRY LEE LEWIS on his 
"Live at the Star Club, Hamburg”  album, one of the greatest live rock and roll

also played with CHUCK BERRY when he toured Britain, where they were spotted by Mickie Most.

 Mickie Most  subsequently produced their debut single, “Tobacco Road” in June 1964 , on which JIMMY PAGE and BIG JIM SULLIVAN played. It reached number 6 in the UK Singles Chart and number 14 in the 
U.S.Billboard Hot 100 chart. The follow-up was another Loudermilk song, “Google 
Eye”, which reached number 10 in the UK in October 1964.
