This CD represents the best works of the Merced Blue Notes. It is a slice of history that truly represents the music of the "American Graffiti" era. This band performed in the same area of California and during the same time period as depicted in the movie American Graffiti. From the ruff-edged, driving "Whole Lotta Nothing", to the polished, commercial "Bad, Bad Whiskey", this is the sound of the early 60's that central California danced to on Saturday nights. Highly recommended, not as great commercial work, but as a true picture of the time.
