Rock And Roll Over Album - Mr. Speed
The subject matter of “Mr. Speed” is very simple, according to Paul: It’s “About being able to pick up women really quickly... It’s about being so fast, having all the lines, having the know-how to pick somebody up without wasting a lot of time and seeing those pick-ups reach their logical conclusion” (Box Set liners). As would be the case with other Paul demos this song would not change between the demo and the version KISS would record. Co-written with Sean Delaney, the song is another subtle piece of sexual innuendo, which was popular with acts in the mid-1970s who couldn’t get away with blatant sexuality. The demo was recorded in July 1976, during a day-off on the "Destroyer" tour, with Eddie Kramer producing.
