THE KEYMEN vs THE KEYMEN [’60s Garage/Surf vs ’50s R&B/Lounge]

The Keymen

 

Actually not [likely] the same band but there’s always a bit of mistery. The Keymen [Originally known as The Fabulous Keymen] were 60’s garage/surf combo from Las Cruces, New Mexico and here they are featured with solid unreleased ’65 set of surf instros, cool ’67 garage single ”What Am I To Do” and some so so/lame frat rock, blue-eyed soul covers.

The ‘other’ Keymen were ’50s rock instrumental group who had one small hit with “Gazackstahagen” in 1958. suported by Dick Clark. Their album is fun all-instro sax driven R&B/Lounge slab with covers of hit tunes in seductive Las Vegas Grind style. Go Keymen Go !!!
