synchro: TQI, morality is a huge question and capacitors a deep subject. I say do it and don't tell anyone. Smile

Wow! Sounds pretty cool, thanks for the tip!

To make it easy, the link in the news article takes you to a German page. Here is a rough translation of the write up: wrote

Deep inside the LHI archive hid a mysterious tape labeled "Woodchucks." It included a "lost" instrumental surf album recorded by Lee Hazlewood in the early 1960s. Some of the songs were later recorded by The Astronauts, Jack Nitzsche, Dick Dale & His Del-Tones, Takeshi Terauchi, The Ventures, John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin), The Trashmen, The Challengers and The Surfaris. Hall's original Lee Hazlewood photographs were never released.

Light in the Attic Records continues its Lee Hazlewood archive series with this very special release. No reissue, but a brand new, never before released time capsule from the surf era. "Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks - Crusin' for Surf Bunnies" is the perfect soundtrack for sun-baked skin and salty waves and summer love. It's the Californian sound of the American dream of the early 1960s.

Although Lee and Suzi Jane Hokom had not met at the time, they both lived that dream - Suzi with her group The Surf Bunnies and Lee with surf music productions like "Surfin 'Hootenanny" by Al Casey, Hal Blaine and the Young Cougars and » From Sea to Ski «by The Glaciers.

Thanks for sharing!! Wow, love it!
Some years ago I've found this one but they won't release it on double vinyl, alas

But I was waiting for releases like this, so many thanks!


So cool! Preordered!!!

Thanks for sharing this. VIVA LEE HAZLEWOOD!!

WHOA!!! I just heard the samples, and while the well known versions of these songs, for the most part, are better than the ones on this release, it is still very, very cool! I'll definitely be ordering this one and will see if I can stock it in the Double Crown shop as well!
