artworkCuca Records was incredibly important to the upper midwest. Plenty of locals were showcased, and even occasional super hits launched, such as The Fendermen's raucous "Mule Skinner Blues," which appears here in it's original version. Also here is one great rockin' instro from 1960.

The Orbits - Orbit Rock dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

This is a basic riff rocker with exciting drums and muted guitar. The audio is brittle and over-leveled, but the song is a prime example of the primitive instros bands made hay with, and just how much hay you can make with a simple riff. Very cool.
