Synopsis

Album Description
Like every great surf combo worth its salt, the Astronauts were fully aware that the dragstrip was only a few miles away from the beach! When it came time to cut their 1964 LP, Competition Coupe, the fiery Boulder, Colo. quintet retooled their slippery-when-wet sound to accommodate the supercharged, A-gas burning crowd faster than the light blinks green on a Christmas-tree drag stack. The blistering lead guitar of Rich Fifield, stacked up against the twin rhythm-guitar assault of Bob Demmon and Dennis Lindsey, navigated the asphalt aisle as easily as it had previously straddled those pounding 20-footers on magical sides like "Little Ford Ragtop," "650 Scrambler" and album title-tune "Competition Coupe." The six LPs cut by the Astronauts for RCA remain holy grails for surf 'n' drag collectors today, and Sundazed's high-definition vinyl, exact repro of Competition Coupe is cause for rubber-burning celebrations everywhere!
