Chinese Checjers - Surf Tribute to Memphis Soul

Cover versions of mostly Booker T and the MG’s songs by modern surf oriented groups.

Several bands appeared on the "SURFIN' SENORITA" compilation album that was also put out by Wildebeest Records, right here in the archives. That cd is excellent, and this one is totally different. These are soul instrumentals and there is more of the funky vibe and phrasing than the usual surfy reverb twang. Hey, surf bands got “soul”, too. Great songs by Tiki Tones, Los Banditos, Sandblasters, and Cocktail Preachers. Get your groove on, bro!
