Frankie & The Poolboys – “Frankie & The Poolboys” – [Double Crown Records]
Our library feels just that little bit more complete with this addition to our surf trove, especially since Mr. Phil Dirt is thanked and one of the songs is named after him (???A Man Called Dirt???). From the smooth-flowing guitar work of the first track, to the burgeoning drumrolls of 3 and 14, with well-placed keyboard work in 5 and 13, the sun-drenched surf vibe is sustained throughout this stellar release presented to you by Pollo Del Mar. Be sure to read the liner notes describing the spirit infusing Frankie & the Pool Boys. Snag yourself a cold one and meet me poolside!
