The Storms (Sundown)

Instrumental groups were a very big part of the Rock and Roll scene in the 1950's and the 1960's. All over the world instrumental groups were very popular during this time. Very rarely do you hear an instrumental song on the radio today, but artists such as Link Wray, Duane Eddy, Ventures and the Surfaris (just to name a few), thrived and did quite well. Several instrumental songs reached the top of the charts, and we all know how many surf instrumental compilations albums exist. Every year it seems that someone will unearth an unheard of instrumental 45 from their attic, basement or maybe somewhere just collecting dust. Today I feature a group called The Storms. They released this very cool instrumental 45 on the Sundown label.
