This is part of the California Surf Series.
The first track here is titled "Surf and Soul," which makes the Sentinals agenda pretty clear; there's enough honking sax throughout this mostly instrumental 1964 album to remind everybody of the R&B that surf derived from. And when they do sing, as on "Ooh Poh Pa Doo" they sound more like Northwest rockers (say, Paul Revere) than a surf band. (Not coincidentally, the Sentinals were among the best players on the So Cal surf scene; drummer Johnny Barbata later went on to join the Turtles and Jefferson Starship). In case you're wondering, the title track is a cover of the Beach Boys ballad, except it's done up-tempo and with Chuck Berry guitar breaks. You'll have to hear it to believe it.
