Great, great music........where can I buy the soundtrack?
In spite of a somewhat cheesy and lame story about corny spies, midgets, and bozo beach babes,the wonderful music here really shines. Dobie Gray with his silk-soul of "(Out of Sight) Out On the Floor....The surf/rock Astronauts with a revved-up, stinging version of Van Morrison's "Baby Please Don't Go", and Gary Lewis and the Playboys' rare gem "Malibu Run", make this a classic and criminally obscure piece! Also includes the Knickerbockers, Freddie and the Dreamers and others. In it's day it seemed like a beach movie/pop festival or a cross between Hullaballoo and Shindig. Unfortunately, almost all of these tunes are unavailable anywhere.
If you can find it, and hear it...........do it!
