Spotnicks, The – “Rare French 60′s Tapes” – [Magic Records]

The Spotnicks are a foursome from Sweden who began in 1961 and still tour with one of the original members. This release is from tapes made in the 1960′s in France. Some tracks have a rockabilly sound (track 2 or 20, for example), others would fit into the surf genre (3, 10, 11,16,18,19), almost all certainly recall the sixties. Although known as an instrumental group, quite a few of the songs on this disc have vocals (5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 22). Track 21 starts with a bitchin’ drum solo. The song Valentina has the same melody as the tune “Save the last dance for me”. Unique sounds from this blast from the past.
