Sandy Nelson: Drums A Go-Go (CD)

(Sundazed Music) 12 tracks

A skater-dater-surfer-safari-watusi dance beat!
"Drums A Go-Go" was released in the heyday of surf rock and features infectious guitar parts (just listen to "Casbah!") - not to mention some of the most indelible
some of the most indelible drum breaks - on record. All recorded analog! While the title track reached #118 on the Billboard Hot 100 in October '65, Nelson's instrumental versions of Nelson's instrumental versions of "Whittier Blvd." (by Thee Midnighters), "I Like It Like That" (by Pete Rodriguez), "Wooly Bully" (by Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs) and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" (by the Rolling Stones) are equally lively, incorporating both fuzzy guitars and rock 'n' roll saxophone, a combination that not only shows the direction in which the music was heading, but also the pre-psychedelic style of the popular teen beat groups of the mid-'60s.
Nelson's dynamic, catchy playing allows the drums to intertwine with the melody in a unique way. The drums connect with the melody in a unique way, giving the album a full, complete sonic sound - even though there are no vocals!

"Sandy Nelson"

Sandy Nelson,

Sandy Nelson, born Sander Nelson in Santa Monica, Cali-fornia, on Dec. 1, 1938, attained considerable popularity in the early Sixties with a series of instrumentals which pitched his monotonous drumming against a solitary guitar playing menacing riffs. Originally a member of the same West Coast high school clique with Jan and Dean, Phil Spector and Nancy Sinatra, Nelson first played drums in an obscure local band called Kip Tyler and the Flips, which recorded for the Ebb and Challenge labels (ex-Beach Boy Bruce Johnston played piano).

In 1958, he played drums on the million-seller 'To Know Him Is To Love Him', by the Teddy Bears, with whom he also travelled during a cash-in tour. Turning to session work, he played on Gene Vincent's Crazy Times album (1959), shortly before recording 'Teen-beat' for the small Original Sound label. The record sold a million worldwide and Nelson immediately moved to the larger Imperial label where he had to wait two years for his second hit 'Let There Be Drums'.

Shortly before recording it, Nelson lost his left foot in a car crash but his drumming was unimpaired. During the Sixties, he recorded a series of near-Muzak instrumental albums covering a variety of contemporary themes but has not been active recently.
