Thanksgiving Day -- Beach Party

Number 3 in the “party” collection …..DEL-FI BEACH PARTY is a bunch of rare or unreleased tracks by Del-Fi artists circa 1963. The big names are David Gates, with his hokey surf novelty "Okie Surfer," Bruce Johnston, who never was an outstanding creative force in his pre-Beach Boys days, and Preston Epps, with the previously unissued "Bongo Beach." The rest is basic surf music, or rock & roll instrumentals from the era. The spooky cocktail-surf of Dave Myers’ "Aquavelva" is my favorite cut. Get all three and add Pulp Surfin’ for a fun snazzy time.
