GENE GRAY & the STINGRAYS – \”Surfer\’s Mood\” / \”Surf Bunny\” (Dot 45-16470) 1963

If someone ever compiles a primitive surf compilation album I\’d be more than a little surprised if \”Surfer\’s Mood\” was not allocated a slot. On the latter recording, Gene Gray & the Stingrays sound like a surf garage band that would be at home on a \”Back From The Grave\” comp. Yeah, it\’s that primal.

The other side \”Surf Bunny\” is my pick though. My cat \”Biba Ringo\” digs it a whole lot. As I\’m cranking out this 45 on my turntable at volume \”11\” she\’s banging away on a couple of coconuts and showing her teeth.

The single first appeared on Linda Records then it was picked up by Dot for a wider distribution.
