Product Description

The Rumblers: Rumblin And Rare is the follow-up to It's A Gas (CDCHD 1286) from 2010, and completes Ace's reissue programme of the band's catalogue. Mastered directly from the best sources, this second volume of stoked and mainly instrumental tracks (just a handful of vocals) will appeal to all instro, surf and garage fans. The package is enhanced with a gorgeous booklet positively bursting with many previously unseen photographs (from band members private albums) and the absorbing essay includes comments from all of the surviving Rumblers. BOSS!

5.0 out of 5 stars A 1960s California Surf Band Gets The Ace Treatment 22 Jun. 2013
By George O'Leary - Published on
Wherever I can when dealing with Oldies music I point out that anything that made the Billboard Pop Top/Hot 100 in the glory days of the single was, indeed, a "hit" of some measure, even those that ended up in the lower regions of those charts, not to mention songs that made the R&B, Country and Adult Contemporary (from 1961) national charts. As I like to point out, in any given year there were upwards of 500 to 650 songs that made the more lucrative Pop listings while just as many or more that did not, to the point where Billboard felt compelled to create the Bubble Under charts. And, of course, there were extenuating reasons why some songs scored low - or not at all - such as the small-label curse with no decent promotional clout.

Over the years there have also been many individual artists or groups/bands whose commercial success with singles is historically minimal - such as the One-Hit Wonders or even some who, despite a fiercely loyal following that continues to this day, never could get one of their singles onto the Hot 100 (such as The Velvet Underground who had something like 30 such releases for a major label like MGM).

Here is one such group, the instrumental Surf band The Rumblers (who took their name from the 1958 Link Wray hit Rumble) from Norwalk, California (guitarists Mike Kelishes and Johnny Kirkland, saxophonist Bob Jones, bassist Wayne Matteson and drummer Adrian Lloyd), whose only claim to national fame was the February 1963 # 87 Hot 100 Boss. Initially released on the tiny Downey 103 late in 1962, it was picked up by the much larger independent Dot when it began to gather interest regionally and re-released as Dot 16421 b/w I Don't Need You No More. To say that Boss has become a cult favorite among those devoted to the classic Surf Sound of the day would be putting it mildly.

As only they can, Ace of London and compiler Brian Nevill, in their release It's A Gas, not only provides you with both sides of their one hit but the rest of their Downey/Dot catalogue of music as well, including previously-unreleased sides such as Freight Train, Strawboss and Why Did You Make Me Cry?, cuts from their LP, their release for Highland Records and one much later when they reformed as The Interns (the original band broke up in 1965).

This Ace follow-up volume, although mostly instrumental offerings as in It's A Gas, also includes some of their truly rare vocal sides.The sound quality in both, like all Ace releases, is immaculate and, also like all their volumes, it comes with a massive fact- and background information-filled booklet replete with discographies, vintage photos and poster/record reproductions. These make all other Rumblers compilations obsolete.
