Paul Revere and the Raiders - Beatnik Sticks c/w Orbit (The Spy)dotdotdot
artworkOriginally on Gardena, this single saw enough action to be picked up by Apex. "Orbit (The Spy)" is very uncharacteristic for early sixties Paul Revere and the Raiders.
Picks: Beatnik Sticks, Orbit (The Spy)

Track by Track Review


Beatnik Sticks dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

"Chop Sticks" and piano boogie woogie. Nifty.

Orbit (The Spy) dotdotdot
Space (Instrumental)

The "Boss" guitar intro, the spacy sfx, and the low-E guitar grind make this a really nice side trip in the annuls of presurf. Mostly a grindy progression, but very ominous. Most unlike what you'd expect from the Columbia period PR&R.
