Permalink What’s the name of this Los Straitjackets song

New Topic
Page 1 of 1

There is a YouTube video of Los Straitjackets playing live in Finland.
The whole video is great, but I really like the first song. I’ve tried searching for the name of the song and for other versions. I’m turning to the fountain of all surf guitar knowledge, wisdom, and lore for help.

please post any info you have. Thanks in advance!

Summerfun and Chiba, thanks so much for the very quick and correct replies!

I believe it’s an old song they are covering and possibly changing the name

Thanks Jeff bigkidude

There may be a jazz or big band version that is even older.
Possibly a different name

"Come With Me To The Casbah" was written and originally recorded by Charles Ganimian in 1960. No earlier versions.
