Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Al Casey - Surfin' Hootenanny c/w Easy Pickin'
|This is the Australian issue of Al Casey's biggest hit (under his own name) on the legendary W&G label. The B-side is a totally non surf non-LP track that didn't even show up on the two Al Casey vault purge CD's.|
Picks: Surfin' Hootenanny, Easy Pickin'
Track by Track Review
Al and producer Lee Hazelwood took a basically cool jam/compliment to the surf bands tracks and placed the Blossoms (K-C-Ettes) over the top inspired by Dick Dale's "King Of The Surf Guitar," rendering it an interesting time capsule, but not particularly great surf, and hiding some otherwise grand guitar work.
"Easy Pickin'" is a non starter almost in the Three Suns vein, with more studio than art. Light weight fluff.
