This compilation gathers some of my favorite “modern” r-billy, psychobilly and garage punk bands playin’ sorta of 50’s style rockin’ stuff. Here you got 70’s/80’s early r-billy revivalists as Robert Gordon, Stray Cats, The Cramps and Tav Falco’s Panther Burns as well as some 90’s aces like Girl Trouble, Reverend Horton Heat, Hot Boogie Chillun, The A-Bones, most recent groups Jack Rabbit Slim or Hipbone Slim & The Knee Tremblers and couple of original authentic 50’s rockers as Link Wray, Ronnie Dawson and Johnny Carrol. There’s even a r-billy cover of Ramones classic “Cretin Hop”. Gotta check this out, Get Hot Or Go Home, Dig!!!

“Capitol was the only company to find any kind of answer to the wildness of Little Richard, in an equally bizarre performer who called himself Esquerita.
For Capitol Esquerita cut a series of the most frantic rockn’ roll records ever made.
Several of Esquerita’s eight records were roughly based on recent Little Richard hits, but only roughly. The singer had a lower register and narrower range than Richard, and virtually spoke the lyrics in a gruff, hoarse shout, occasionally breaking into a wavering falsetto. Few of the records sounded as if the band had ever played the songs before and frequently most of the musicians took off on searing solos whose key and tempo were only vaguely connected to those of others in the band.
Esquerita played piano with a speed and staccato attack that echoed Little Richard’s style, but the overall sound here in some way conjured a chaotic symphony, as a succession of chords chased each other desperately up to the keyboard. The violence that was normally only a promise (or threat) in rock ‘n’ roll was realized in Esquerita’s sound.”
This is 1969. compilation LP in STEREO ENCHANCED MONO and it sounds pretty wyld. All trax are from 1958/59 recorded for Capitol records. Dig this Little Richard style rockers by one and only Voola!
“Esquerita sounds like he looks”
This is the very first Surfadelic comp I made way back in 2009. and it was downloaded over 25.000 times. So, it’s kinda very “popular” as it should be, alright! Revisited version has more trax and real nice cover art, indeed!
As ya know, Bo is one of those pioneers of rock’n’ roll, he invented that wyld Bo Diddley beat that influenced all kinsa crazy loosers from Stones, Pretty Things, Kinks, Yardbirds, Downliners Sect, 1000’s of 60’s garage punkers to New York Dolls, The Stooges and bunch of garage revivalists as Thee Headcoats and The Gories. If I must choose between Chuck Berry, Little Richard or Bo, I would go for Mr. Diddley almost anytime. Bo played R&B, blues, rock’n’roll, doo wop, soul and funk. Some said Bo even influenced instrumental surf as he did many rock instros before surf rock craze of the early 60’s.
This comp. mostly includes my favorite Bo’s 60’s recordigs, so there’s no stuff like notorious and zilion times compiled “Hey Bo Diddley”, “I’m a Man”, “Pretty Thing”, “Mona”, “Who Do You Love”, “Diddy Wah Diddy”, “Roadrunner” and other Bo’s classics.
Collection opens with “Let Me Pass” from ’65 LP “500% More Man”. There are two more trax from the same album – “Root Hoot” and “Let the Kid Dance”. It’s Maybe my favorite 60’s Bo slab. Than, there’s “Little Girl” from “Go Bo Diddley” his second Lp from ’59, a classic Bo R&B. From ’60 Lp “Bo Diddley Is A Gunslinger” I picked “Ride On Josephine” and slightly different take on doo wop ballad “No More Lovin'”.
“Spend My Life With You”, “Heart-O-Matic Love”, “Cookie Headed Diddley”, “Rock ‘N’ Roll”, and “Moon Baby” are real fine unreleased tracks from “Rare & Well Done” CD.
From “In The Spotlight” LP I took “Craw-Dad”, a classic Diddley’s beat tune that was covered many times, first came to mind The Gories cover.
Instrumental “Aztec” and “Back Home” are from “Bo Diddley Is A… Lover”, 1961. album.
“Bo Meet’s A Monster” is a fun tune for your Haloween party jukebox.
From 1962. LP “Bo Diddley & Company” we have (Extra Read All About) “Ben”, your tipical Bo’s tribal rockin’ beat, R&B rave-up of “Pretty Girl” and soulful blues “Call Me”. “Here ‘Tis” from “Bo Diddley’s A Twister” LP. First heard it as The Yardbirds cover.
“Mama Keep Your Big Mouth Shut” is great tune that was covered by The Pretty Thing and Ugly Ducklings amongst others.
“Pills” and “Jo-Ann” are from ’66 LP “The Originator”. “Pills” was made famous by the legendary NY Dolls cover from their debut slab.
“I Can Tell” from Bo Diddley ’62 is probably my favorite BO’s song, sooo COOL!
“We’re Gonna Get Married” was A-side single from 1966. Great R&B/Soul with superfine girl vocals and beat.
“The Greatest Lover In The World” , single from 1963. So, yeah he was. There’s a cool cover by The Fuzztones.
I would vote “Ooh Baby” the coolest summer tune anytime. It’s like the R&B summer breeze.
Well, “Bo Diddley 1969” sure have to sound like that in ’69. Again, those fabulous girl voices.
With “I’m High Again” & “If The Bible’s Right” Bo’s in the soul/funk teritory and it works just fine.
“I Wonder Why (People Don’t Like Me)” from ’65 Lp “Hey Good lookin'” is a right question for a complicated caracter as Bo was.
“Please Mr.Engineer” is another superfine unissued track, it closes this supercool Surfadelic comp. alright!
Here are five more volumes of mostly obscure 60’s US instrumental rumble pulled from rare singles with great sound fidelity. Dig!!!
[SPECIAL THANX to Brian for this cool collection]
Yeah you’re right, here comes a brand new Surfadelic collection and it’s a hot one believe you me. This time it’s a killer mix of 60’s rockabilly rockers, garage, hot rod and even some r&b stompers. You gotta deal with high-octane rockin’ acts as Bobby Comstock, The Druids, The Sonics, Dean Carter, Gene Vincent, The Wailers, Link Wray, The Trashmen, Dick Dale, Del Shannon and others… There’s Ted Taylor with original version of classic “Rambling Rose” (later covered by MC5), hilariously sweet favavorite “Little Gun, Little Me” by Diana Darrin and yeah Michael Caine on cover art. Check some favs down below and…ya know… You better dig, allright!!!
