JIMMY TAKEUCHI & HIS EXCITERS – The Ventures [1971. Japanese Surf/Lounge]

 

Jimmy Takeuchi was a Japanese jazz drummer who have recorded many instrumental lounge slabs with His Exciters as backing band. This here is a surf oriented album with covers of classic tunes as Walk Don’t Run, Wipe Out, Diamond Head, The Cruel Sea, Pipeline, Apache and others. Funny is that many of his albums have ”Drum, Drum, Drum” in title [quess ’cause he was drummer alright!] If you’re a fan of Takeshi Terauchi and Asian surfin’ sounds, then this stuff’s fer ya. Dig!
