Frankie & The Pool Boys – “Spin The Bottle” – [Double Crown Records]
An eagerly anticipated new album from this fine San Francisco Bay Area modern surf band. Ranging from hard rocking to pop to Spaghetti western, most songs are original compositions. The first 16 tracks are instrumental, then there are 4 vocal (gasp!) versions of previous songs. Great fun, good energy, well executed – beautifully produced by Slacktone drummer Dusty Watson.
