The Royal Teens - Short Shorts And Other Golden Classicsdotdotdot
artworkThe Royal Teens were a New Jersey band founded in 1957. The Royal Teens didn't record an album, but did cut a large number of tracks, several of which were issued as singles. They lasted until 1965. Vocalist Bob Gaudio went on to sing with The Four Seasons. An interesting historical note - a young Al Kooper sometimes toured with them in 1959 at the tender age of 14. Some members of The Royal Teens formed Joey and the Twisters.

This LP includes one instrumental.

Royal Blue dotdotdot
Rock'n'Roll (Instrumental)

"Royal Blue" has a gutty guitar sound, with low down sax. This may be fairly simple and even not very adventurous for the period, but it stands up really well, and stands the test of time. Cool for cats primitive rock'n'roll.
