The List

Here are the versions of 'Louie Louie' that I currently own. I would be happy to trade with anyone if you have any additional versions to add. Have a band? Want to be part of history? Check out the F.A.Q list in 'Louie Louie and Other Mysteries of Life' page.

Y'know, the worst part about this is that when I got up to 50 versions I thought I was the LEADER of the pack! I HAD all of them. Well, as it turns out I didn't even have ONE TENTH of the recorded versions available! Well, with your help that will change!
