Muscle Beach Party – and a whole lot more – a host of rockin 60s numbers from the young Frankie Avalon! Frankie may have started out as a kiddie star, but by the time of these sides he was a much more mature rocker – one who brought a nice sort of sweetness to the vocals he laid down on screen in a host of well-screened 60s beach party films – with more than enough depth to match some of the bigger surf-styled singers of his generation! And sure, Avalon wasn't ever going to challenge the Wilson brothers, but he did know how to swing a twisting groove with the best of them – as you'll hear on this sweet collection of numbers recorded for United Artists – most of which have a twangy approach that's right up there with Capitol efforts of this type at the time.
