Ski Surfin' by The Avalanches
Released: Oct 2009
Label: Rhino/Warner Bros.
A triple-whammy of gimmickry, an all-instrumental record that sought to cash in on both the skiing and the surfing fads of the early '60s, Ski Surfin' would be a throwaway were it not for the superior collection of session dudes behind its recording. Phil Spector's go-to drummer Hal Blaine and guitarist Billy Strange (himself a solo artist) are accompanied by a pre-Bread David Gates on bass. Ski Surfin' provides a nice cushion in between your more traditional Christmas records.
