Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Paul Revere and the Raiders - Beatnik Sticks c/w Orbit (The Spy)
|Issued in 1960, this is one of Paul Revere and the Raiders earliest singles. The b-side is very uncharacteristic for early sixties Paul Revere and the Raiders. This single saw enough action to be picked up by Apex.|
Picks: Orbit (The Spy)
Track by Track Review
"Chop Sticks" and piano boogie woogie. Nifty.
The "Boss" guitar intro, the spacy sfx, and the low-E guitar grind make this a really nice side trip in the annuls of presurf. Mostly a grindy progression, but very ominous. Most unlike what you'd expect from the Columbia period PR&R.
