The Charades - Please Be My Love Tonightdotdotdot
artworkThe Charades were a doo-wop band. In studio, they were backed by Al Garcia and the Rhythm Kings, who released at least on instro under the Charades' name. They signed to Motown for a brief spell. Their vocals included "Surf and Shout," "The Soul" (The backtrack with flute and guitar added was issued as an instro), and "Surf Bird." This disc includes one instro in the Pachuko soul / surf 'n' soul style.

Pachuko Soul (Instrumental)

This is an alternate take of the well circulated Pachuko Soul tune has been recorded several times, most notably by the Original Surfaris, who substituted guitar for the intended horn lead. This is a great pure arrangement, as it was intended.
