Years before Gary Usher produced a slew of sun-drenched California classics by the Byrds, Chad & Jeremy and Sagittarius, he sang lead for the Super Stocks, a fabulous studio-only combo dedicated to installing a wide-track, total-performance muscle car in the daydream garage of every American teenager. From the summer of ?64, Surf Route 101 finds these seasoned Los Angeles session men taking a hard left turn towards the beach to frug and monkey on the golden west coast sands while blasting out magical, Beach Boys-style surfing vocals for a bevy of bikini-clad young girls!
Surf Instrumentals are great!

(5 out of 5 stars)
"The reviewer that gave this one star because it only has 4 vocal songs does not understand surf music. 90% of surf music is guitar instrumental. Was Pipeline only an instrumental? Is Dick Dale's Miserlou ONLY an instrumental? Those are surf classics. The Super Stock offer solid surf guitar with a nice vintage sound. although not as powerfully performed as Dick Dale their songs groove along with an instantly recognizable surf sound. If anything the vocal song are the weakest part of the album. They are a bit on the silly side, but still fun. I would compare The Super Stocks to maybe The Astronauts in terms of vintage sound. The strength of the album is the amount of original material in a genre that did a lot of covers. If you like the vintage surf guitar sound this would be a nice addition to your collection."
