9780823076390: The Golden Age of Rock Instrumentals

From the search for new and unique sounds to a blending of the traditional and the experimental came an exciting and eclectic musical genre created by such pioneering artists as Les Paul, Link Wray, Dick Dale and his Del-Tones, and Booker T. and the MG's.
Now, for the first time, the rich history of this genre's golden decade is lovingly examined in one comprehensive volume: the pop power of Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass; the tasty country licks of Chet Atkins and Buck Owens; the soulful Memphis stew cooked up by King Curtis and Bill Black's Combo; the surfer's stomp of the Chantays, the Pyramids, and the Surfaris; the jumpin' jazz of Dave Brubeck and Jimmy Smith; the amazing world of Joe Meek and the whirlwind that was the Tornadoes; the dance-crazed hits of the Rockin' Rebels and Johnny and the Hurricanes; the twangy guitars of Duane Eddy and the Ventures; the wailing sax and pounding drums of Big Jay McNeely and Cozy Cole; and the dream and theme music of Martin Denny and Henry Mancini.
