  1. Never heard this one before, Kid. Next to 'Sugar Shack' with Jimmy Gilmer on vocals, the highest charting Fireballs' record in Toronto was 'Torquay' in 1959.

    1. Oh, yeah! "Torquay," "Bulldog," and "Vaguero" on Top Rank 45s were early "surf guitar" favorites. (As to "Sugar Shack," yeccch!). The Kid says, "Thanks for the comment, Marie, it's nice to know Fireballs records made it to Canada!" For more: http://magicjukebox.blogspot.com/search/label/Fireballs

  2. I agree, Frank - I absolutely HATED Sugar Shack when it came out - and still do!
