Sandy Nelson, Beat That #?!@* Drum (1966)
I got hip to Sandy Nelson when I was killing time behind the counter of a music store, I’d search particular drummers, look for albums that featured the greats, people like Earl Palmer. And then the name Sandy Nelson came up – and I realised I’d heard some of his swinging sixties drum cuts; a big-band approach to rock’n’roll, that kind of thing. Good fun. Sorta novelty records really, but serious/ish at the same time. Well I ordered myself a couple of CDs and that was sorta all I needed. And then after a while it was far more than I needed. Then I forgot about him for a while. Until I found this album – check out the whole thing here if you like. It’s a lot of fun. Some good tunes. Right time/right place I really dig it all over again.
