The Surfsiders Sing The Beach Boys Songbook

Whoa... Um... It's hard to tell at what point this Design Beach Boy rip-off project went bad. My guess is that the entire production budget of nothing was spent on the cover art and the producer, with less than nothing left to spend on sessions musicians, threw up his hands and assembled enough people from the lunch room to barf up this gem. Everything is crazy. The results are as good as any zesty badtastical private press lounge album you will ever find.

  1. There's a rumor that Lou Reed sings/plays on this album, which was on a subsidiary of Pickwick Records. (one commenter suggests "Little Deuce Coupe" and "Surfin'"). The five-star reviews on Amazon are a hoot.


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
