Peter Lewis would later end up in Moby Grape, the rest of the Cornells would go on to found a prestigious college in upstate New York. But at this particular moment in time, they'd joined forces to play spiffy surf music while wearing equally spiffy surfin' jackets & sweaters. A sunken treasure liberated from Davy Jones' Locker by the fearless frogmen at Sundazed. Includes three bonus tracks, 'Mama's Little Baby', 'Wak-A-Cha', & 'Surf Fever'. Sundazed. 1995.
Surfin' at Malibu, grunion runs, full moonshine on waves....

"Instantly took me back to those hot summer days of the sixties when my biggest worry wasn't how I'd look in a bikini, but if the RIGHT guy would notice me. Nostalgia and adventure packed into a little CD...remember when the Cornell's played at "Mother's" in Santa Monica? And appeared on "I've Got a Secret" with Garry Moore....and flew to New York to do the Les Crane show? This CD brings back all the memories of being a teen ager in the 60's and makes me wonder why we didn't see more of this group. Instrumentally, they were far superior to most of the beach bands and genetically, as the sons of celebrities, they had a "leg up" in the business. Now, perhaps a new generation can give them the recognition they so richly deserve, if they can keep the CD out of the hands of their parent and grandparents. Tom Crumplar, Pete Lewis, Jim O'Keefe, Charlie Correll and the late Bob Linkletter were five of the greated surf musicians ever."
