The Guitar Ramblers

Malibu Caravan
Happy, Youthful New Sounds Of The Guitar Ramblers
Under the Direction of Jack Marshall
Produced by Jim Harbert
Columbia Special Products
Special Archives Series
CSRP 8867
1963

This is more of a light pop album with touches of "surf". The track, Surf Beat, is pretty heavy surf, and can be found online for purchase/download.

This "Jack Marshall" is probably the same Jack Marshall who may have been working on theme and incidental music for the 1960s TV series The Munsters at the time of this release.

There are a lot of twists and turns in the music to help hold your interest.

  1. Malibu Caravan is great. It has a sparseness that is comparable to 10 ragas for a disco beat.

    Excellent find.
