This is a well packaged collection by Ace Records out of Great Britain of early to mid-1960s beach and gearhead productions overseen by maverick producer Gary Paxton, he of the Hollywood Argyles and "Alley Oop fame, as well as producing Bobby "Boris" Pickett's classic "Monster Mash" single.
You are not going to find any hits here from the standpoint of what typcially passes for surf and drag music on "oldies" radio stations. Instead, you'll find great "should have been a hit" singles and songs that were made with Paxton's involvement or oversight in the hopes they would be picked up by a major label and promoted, made all the more interesting by virture of what was captured on tape in spite of the limited budgets most of these songs were produced on. Paxton essentially worked for himself, so he recorded what interested him, which is about 180 degrees opposite of how music is produced today. So, if you are into this era and type of music, and can appreciate a DIY ethic, you won't be disappointed with this purchase.
