This is perhaps the only way to get the difinitive version of Land of 1000 dances, by Round Robin. Totally eclipses any cover including Wilson Pickett and Cannibal and the Headhunters. Production value stands up today with killer bass and horn section. I believe he used to be a contract artist on one of the 60's TV raves; (Shindig,Hullabaloo,Where the Action Is,etc.)
The song was originally performed there and was picked up by a small record label and became a huge #1 hit in the S.F. Bay Area. I wore the grooves out on my 45rpm and never could find it again. What a great surprise to find it here on this compilation offered through Amazon---KUDOS!! Another Killer track is offered up by The Novas; a proto surf band with The Crusher--a pro wrestling take-off. Reverb settings must have set depth and intensity records. These two are worth the price of admission alone. Get it and Dance!
