Los Straitjackets

Deke Dickerson Sings The Great Instrumental Hits

Yep Roc 2407

Released on October 14, 2014

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

An ‘instrumental’ by definition is a song without words. But what record collector geeks like myself know is that there are two scenarios for every classic in the Great Instrumental Songbook. Either that song started out with words and a garage band turned it into a guitar instrumental, or, once an instrumental became a hit, some aspiring knucklehead came along and wrote words to it. In case you’re confused, imagine Bill Murray’s classic lounge singer character on ‘Saturday Night Live’ belting out drunken made up lyrics to the ‘Star Wars Theme.’ It can be done, it has been done, and these songs truly come alive once you hear them sung…with words!

In this case, America’s #1 Instrumental combo (Los Straitjackets) and I decided that 6 knuckleheads were better than one and that joining forces for an album’s worth of vocal instrumentals was yet another mountain that needed be to climbed. It is the first album of its kind, and it is required to be in your collection.

Perfect for parties, wait until your guests have a few beers in them and throw this sucker on and turn it up loud. Before you know it, you’ll be yelling the lyrics to “Pipeline” and “Popcorn” and making out to the romantic vocal version of “Miserlou” and, most of all, wondering why it took so long for someone in show business to come up with an idea this good.

Come on baby, can’t you feel it? Let’s Rock!
