A huge Top Ten hit in the autumn of 1967, the Human Beinz's cover of this Isley Brothers obscurity was a relatively successful attempt to record a modern, rock/psychedelic version of a dance rocker along the lines of "Gimmie Some Lovin'" or the Isley Brothers' own "Shout." The main ingredient here is the powerful rhythm section, led by bassist Mel Pachuta and drummer Mike Tatman. Both carry the rolling, R&B-drenched tempo throughout the whole piece, with a locomotive-like energy. The chant-like "no-no-no-no" vocal hook was one of the most powerful of the time, and gives the listener something to immediately latch onto. Aside from the strong R&B feel, the song also references the time it was recorded in, and contains a Yardbirds-like electric guitar rave-up from John "Dick" Belley that satisfied the underground audience of the time. In the end, the song is a case of welding different styles that cut across audiences and genres, and "Nobody but Me" remained a staple of oldies radio.
