"Howard Johnson's Got His Ho Jo Working" is a musical parody on multiple levels. The title is a double-entendre paying clever homage to the black magic voodoo of Mojo with the abbreviation Ho Jo, as well as referencing the international chain of diner/motels the band often called home.

This almost immediately endeared the song to NRBQ fans, who were universally encouraged to contribute during live concerts. Adams quick wit and brilliant sense of timing can also be credited for the Lyrical menu-like ruminations that recall earlier originals such as "Howard Johnson's Got His Ho-Jo Workin'".
· It had the feel of a transition record, and it certainly was just that. Al Anderson had replaced Steve Furgeson, but Gadler was still on board. Plenty of really good songs with Howard Johnson's Got His Ho-Jo Workin', Magnet, New Tune, and Get A Grip. Also in '72, Workshop was released. Frank Gadler is gone, but Tom Staley is still there on the.
