The Electric Underground - Guitar Explosion


Get ready to FREAK OUT with this collection of mind-melting psychedelic...uh Surf Rock Songs. The titles, the 1967 date, the wording, everything about this suggests full-on-fuzzed guitar trip-outs for the NEW GENERATION but really you get some pretty mediocre covers of surf songs. I don't quite have them all picked out, but to give you the idea "Aerial Flip-Out" is "Rumble" except with less distortion than Link used. Don't make the same $15 mistake I made, there's much more exciting stuff out there that actually makes good on the promise. But if you're curious here it is

i actually liked some of the tracks on this album, lost the file, and waited about a year for someone to finally upload it! hey! won't lose it again.

I have this record and thought it was ok. Ages later I found a 50's cheapo record called 'Rock and Roll Party by Don and Eddie, and it's the exact same album as this one by the 'Electric Underground'!

these are great tracks, but not "Guitar underground"..maybe if it was 1959 would this be 'underground" simply old sessions probably from '63 rehashed on the tax-break catalogue...peace..love the cover!

According to Discogs, which cites a blog which has disappeared, this is also the same album as the 1960 release, Twangy Guitars by "Billy Boyd", an alias of Jerry Cole. http://www.discogs.com/Billy-Boyd-Twangy-Guitars/master/482936
