Musical Monday - Silly Surfers & Weird-Ohs

This album came out around 1964 or 1965.  If you've seen any of the surfer/drag-race model kits in the style of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, you'll recognize the artwork.



This album was actually released to promote the model kits.  I dubbed it a few years ago, and here it is.  The songs are straight 60s teen/surf/pop, with a lot of humor and sarcasm thrown in.

It may not be spooky, but it definitely weird!


A folding CD case front cover is included, showing both sides of the LP sleeve, and a rear CD insert.


Here's a track list:
1) Gremmie Out of Control

2) Hot Dogger Hangin’ Ten
3) Hodad Makin’ the Scene with a Six Pack
4) A Woodie on a Surfari
5) Beach Bunny Catchin’ Rays
6) Cowabunga! Surf’s Up
7) Huey’s Hut Rod
8) Daddy, the Swingin’ Suburbanite
9) Drag Hag
10) Davy, the Psycho Cyclist
11) Digger
12) Endsville Eddie
 
 
By the way, the "twangy" sound you hear between cuts (and inside some of them) is explained by this bottom image, which was one side of the LP insert.

The other side of the paper sleeve was the lyrics to the songs, which I've included as a 2-page PDF.

Thanks so much for posting this. Any way you could also post it in a lossless audio format?
