So you’re looking at the album cover just to the left and guessing that it’s a vintage children’s record intended to cash in on the hit mid-sixties series starring Adam West and you would be right. But there was no such band as “The Sensational Guitars of Dan and Dale”. Nah, studio musicians were used instead. Like, uh, Sun Ra on the Hammond B-3 with members of his Arkestra contributing horns. And the Blues Project. Hey, a guy’s gotta eat. And whack jazz or whack blues musicians find food pretty hard to come by (unfortunately). You can learn more about this interesting footnote in music by clicking here and scrolling down to G8.

In all, it’s pretty run-of-the-mill mostly instrumental rock and roll of that era – although Steve Katz’ lead guitar sounds pretty outta sight for a kiddie record.
