That's Swift: From the Norman Petty Vault / Various [Import][CD]
This CD compiles the very best of the non-Fireballs rock instrumentals that Norman Petty cut in the early 1960s, and a rocking little disc it is too. Established professionals like Canada's successful Wes Dakus' Rebels rub shoulders with obscure outfits such as the Tiaras and the Chandelles, all showcasing the patented excitement that Petty pioneered with the Fireballs. There's R&B flavoured items from the Gliders and the Chances, moody melodies from the Techniques, King Pins and Bentleys, and several quasi-surf classics such as 'Jetster', 'Riptide' and 'Termites'. Most of the acts are from New Mexico and West Texas, and feature local guitar heroes like John Wagner (Five Counts) and Ysidro Garcia (Gliders).
