Maybe this isn't too obscure of an obscurity, but man do I love this song. The basic structure is simple but there's so much going on: a kind John Lee Hooker style boogie beat, another guitar laying back, playing that little two-note figure until its time for that eerie droning solo, marvelously understated drums (no damn high hat (I've begun to think those things are a curse, though I use one), and of course the crazy absurd lyrics that actually have nothing to do with woodpeckers.

I wish I could have been at this recording session.

The Braves, "Woodpecker Rock"
