The Jolly Jacks - Rock the House / There's Something On Your Mind

I'll admit to enjoying the jive-talking records like Effie Smith and Andre Williams, and this has a lot in common with the "Black Godfather's" material. I vastly prefer Rock the House, an organ groover with a similar vibe to "Pass the Hatchet". I've never been a fan of Big Jay McNeely's "There is Something On Your Mind" nor its multitude of cover versions and this is no exception. Didn't find much information on this one other than a date of 1965 and that it was a bit of regional hit in Baltimore.
