28 original RCA rarities from 1962-1965 with 12 page booklet. There's just no reasonable explanation why one of the greatest surf bands ever came from, of all places, the relatively sea-less state of Colorado - but that's a fact. Extraordinarily popular in their home state, the Astronauts were not only a terrific surf band (their big hit Baja, included here, is one of the finest guitar instrumentals of all time) but a pioneer bar band as well. RCA must have thought well of them - they released no fewer than seven albums by these semi-geeky looking guys, all on the strength of one single that go no higher than #94 on the national pop charts. This CD gathers up a number of unreleased sides and rare singles-only recordings for a complete picture of an unusual, hard-rockin' band. It includes their first single for Palladium (Come Along Baby b/w Tryin' To Get To You) and many local hits that failed to make any of the RCA albums: Hot Doggin', Surf Party, Ride The Wild Surf, Go Fight For Her, Swim Little Mermaid, The La La Song and Tomorrow's Gonna Be Another Day.
