CD on SUNDAZED RECORDS by Mr. Gasser & The Weirdos - Hot Rod Hootenanny (1963) Limited Edition Hot Rod Hootenany featured an eye-popping, full-color cover illustration by Roth. Upon release in 1963, it created quite a stir among surf/hot rod aficionados and entered the lower reaches of the Hot 100. Falling out of print after the crest of the hot rod craze, this album quickly became a prized collectable. Out of print for decades, Sundazed Music is gassed to roll this LP out of the garage and back onto your turntable! Pressed on competition-ready vinyl and compact disc, packaged in a retina-searing reproduction of the original Big Daddy artwork, it will go from zero to 33 1/3 RPM in seconds! FLOOR IT!!! A true ´´renaissance man,´´ Ed ´´Big Daddy´´ Roth excelled in a number of pursuits. Artist, cartoonist, car-customizer and pinstriper were but a few of his specialties. Growing up in California, surrounded by the surf and hot rod movements of the late ´50s, Roth´s expansive imagination was set in motion and popular culture would never be the same. Working closely with Ed Roth, who assumed the nom du disc ´´Mr. Gasser,´´ Fred Rice carefully selected vocalists and musicians for the recording session. Gary Usher assembled and led the vocal talent, which included Jackie ´´Robyn´´ Ward, Chuck Girard, Richard Burns and Darlene Love. And how´s this for a guitar line-up: Glen Campbell, Jerry Cole and Howard Roberts! On drums you´ve the great Hal Blaine. Meanwhile, Cliff Hils anchored the bass position and Leon Russell played piano while Steve Douglas wailed on sax. What a fabulous group of ´´Weirdos´´! The combination of A-list players and a top-notch studio produced a superior-sounding LP, every bit the sonic equal of contemporary recordings from stars like the Super Stocks and the Beach Boys.
