Written by keyboardist Max Middleton, "Led Boots" is an aggressive funk number that could have been a Stevie Wonder song from the time if Max and the others didn't take it out! A simple rhythmic riff opens the tune. Beck plays counter to it. After his solo, the band piles on the funk for a few pleasingly repetitive bars, then Beck goes nuts. Hammer soon joins in the madness. Both are committed. The tune fades out about the same time as their meds kick in.
