STRUMMIN' MENTAL! : Part One - Real Gone Instrumentals R&R & Surf:1958-1965

32 "raw, rare and rockin' instrumentals" from 1958-1965, true to the packaging on the label. A lot of this sounds like Link Wray as filtered through a particularly garagey lens: crude, echoing guitars, some weird sound effects, the occasional surf influence and honking sax a la Johnny & the Hurricanes, all tied together with a general sense of mania. There's hardly anything here anyone but the instrumental fanatic would recognize but don't let that put you off. These 32 whomping stompers can sit proudly next to the best of Link Wray and Dick Dale. Mickey Hawks & the Night Raiders' Cottonpickin' is by far the most well known tune here. Just check out some of the hammerin' hopefuls' handles and you'll know they mean business - Rhythm Rockers - Madness, The Jokers - Purple Crackle, The Renegades - Geronimo, The Cre-Shells - Dracula, The Blazers - Poison, the Monterays- Blast Off and on an on. Best tune title award goes to the Knights for Tale Of A 280 Pound Shoe Salesman. If want a CD that's strong on guitar torturing from start to finish, grab this.
