A quartet of smoking instrumental albums from the T-Bones – a mighty cool studio combo from mid 60s LA! First up is Boss Drag – raucous drag strip rockers and driving R&B-fueled instrumentals by The T-Bones – killer material on Liberty from a group of young session wizards – including Hal Blaine, Glen Campbell, Leon Russell, Dave Pell, Steve Douglas and others! It's wildly fun
stuff that goes all in with the drag strip novelty – but totally transcends it – with some rubber-burning, rumbling excellence! Killer guitars, sax, organ drums from a one-time relatively anonymous cast of players. Includes "Hey Little Cobra", "Shut Down", "Drag City", "Draggin'", "Scorchin", "Little Deuce Coupe", "Boss Drag" and more. Boss Drag At The Beach adds in some cool surf-styled work on the guitars – and titles include "Haulin Henry", "Pearlin", "White Water Wipeout", "High Boy Hauler", and "Thunder Road". Doin The Jerk changes things up in a nice way – adding in plenty of the jerk rhythms promised in the title, which makes the sound more soulful than before – while still holding onto all the best guitar grooves from previous records! Titles include "Soda Jerk", "The Jerk", "Come On Do The Jerk", "Bread & Butter", and "Feelin Fine". Last up is Everyone's Gone To The Moon – one of the coolest, grooviest albums ever from the T-Bones – a set that features sublime Cali arrangements from Nick DeCaro – and a slightly expanded sound that sometimes adds in a bit of vocals to the usual guitar grooves of the group! There's a great late 60s vibe to the record that's a nice change from hot rod and surf modes of a few years before – and titles include "La Do Da Da", "Fare Thee Well", "Oh How Happy", "Paint It Black", "Kicks", and "Everyone's Gone To The Moon".
