I think the Hollies tune was included as a bonus track on "Evolution" when it got released on CD

Ah looks like it on the UK edition. Hollies (and so many other 60s UK bands) discography is a bit confusing...

Great show, but just in case anybody's missing Monica's weekly gif:
Avatar Sun. 10/27/13 8:19pm Revolution Rabbit Nov63:

...interesting to read @ Abbey Road early '67 when Pepper was going down - as often think of Pepper in Abbey Rd. 2 whilst 'Piper' by Floyd going down in #1, & Zombies' 'Oddesey' reporetedly 1st thing in #2 after Pepper ( - 'No no! - Leave those 4-tracks machines linked up for a minute!)...

Truck drivers just use a bottle. To judge from what's littering the roadsides, Gatorade bottles are popular for that.
