50 Years Of MyTunes: A $20 Reward...

...for the verified identity of this song. I want to buy it from iTunes or the like. I wouldn't be offering money if I knew what it was.

I'm working on a blog post about instrumental surf, and I want to include this. Here's what I know about it.  I recorded the song on WORT listener sponsored radio in about 1986 or 1987 in Madison, Wisconsin. I subsequently lost the original play list, and now have it only on a compilation. I think I mislabeled it as Link Ray.

Update: Jason made the right call: It's Sandy Nelson's And Then There Were Drums from 1962.

Update 2: Sandy Nelson sounds like an old-fashioned Gene Krupa schooled drummer.


  1. the track doesn't seem to play...either here or at youtube

  2. Hmmm, it works for me. Try this link.

  3. It plays OK on my iPhone, independent of my blogger and YouTube accounts (I'm not logged on on that device). So I really don't know what to do to fix it.

    Maybe somebody else will stop by.

  4. Sandy Nelson And Then There Were Drums

  5. Excellent call Jason! Thank you!

    Did you know that off the top of your head?

    How can I get you your $20?

  6. It was like... ...shazam... ...and I knew what it was.

    And keep your money!

  7. well, if I could have played it!....I still wouldn't have known it....[sniff] $20.....

  8. I wouldn't have guessed it right.
