The Ragin' Storms - Knock Out / Mule Rock

Both sides of this 1961 instrumental are pretty good saxophone rock & roll wailers. Unfortunately I can't find out much about it. Both songs are attributed to Tommy O'Keefe, don't know what else he might have done, and as far as I can tell this is the only thing they put out. Knock Out is the Knock Out here, Mule Rock is a bit slower but still a pretty decent tune.

The Mus-Twangs - Marie / Roch Lomond

The well-named Mus-Twangs were a instrumental venture of Paul Cotton from Poco, renamed from the Capitols and later becoming The Starfires. I know that because Paul Cotton is remarkably well documented. These are Duane Eddy-ish songs, neither of them originals: Roch Lomond is a rock Loch Lomond ("You'll take the high road and I'll take the low road") and Marie is an Irving Berlin tune. But hey, it's fun.
