Limited edition turquoise vinyl

Includes their elusive, cult classic title track single

A tidal wave of Minny-beat garage from all incarnations of the carnivorous Vaqueros! Like Twin City neapolitan ice cream, surf instros, Linda Anderson vocal surf-rock cuts, and John Grizzard's grizzly garage cuts add three splendid flavors all in one sonic carton! On turquoise vinyl!

Whether it was the blistering surf guitar licks of Terry Schmidt on "80 Foot Wave" & "Jonah," Linda Anderson doing her over-caffeinated Wanda Jackson on "Baby Baby," or John Grizzard's gritty, Sonics-esque sound, this band was something special! We're just glad they never changed their name so we could group the vast variety of gems the Vaqueros cranked out all onto one fantastic, largely unissued album!

Along with Minneapolis greats Gypsy, the Litter, Jokers Wild and many more, the Vaqueros recorded at Kay Bank Studios, a relatively short-lived studio that produced some of the best hits of the 60s. "Liar, Liar" by the Castaways was recorded there, along with the Trashmen's famed "Surfin' Bird." The Vaqueros, though landlocked, produced some of the best surf music during that era, and along with a smattering of upbeat garage rock, it's surely a record you won't want to miss.
