Jan & Dean Take Linda Surfin'

Jan & Dean Take Linda Surfin' by Jan & Dean
Released: Feb 1963
Label: Capitol Records
Despite a cover photo featuring a hot rod, surfboards and a beach bunny, Jan Barry and Dean Torrence's second long player is still rooted in their love of East Coast doo-wop. They even tackle The Four Seasons' "Walk Like a Man." The two qualities to admire when listening to Jan & Dean are Barry's quirky production, which served as a big influence on Brian Wilson, and the duo's sharp, often tongue-in-cheek, sense of humor. Try to listen to "Let's Turkey Trot," especially the last 30 seconds, and not crack up: "And you're just gonna be doing this gobble-gobble diddley all over the place!"
