Silver Saucer's mission is to do for CDs what Drastic Plastic Records does for vinyl: ensuring the continued availability and best possible sound for seminal recordings. Our first release is Agent Orange's classic Living in Darkness. The CD features the original LP track list with a limited initial run of 1,000 copies. We here at Drastic boldly assert that Living In Darkness is the greatest skate-punk record of all time. Certainly one of the three most important hardcore records for the burgeoning skate scene in the early eighties (JFA's Valley of the Yakes and Minor Threat's Out Of Step being the other two). Originally released in 1981, this marriage between hardcore punk and surf music has influenced countless music fans, musicians and skate fans since its debut. Always relevant and extremely seminal, this record is a key cornerstone of any punk collection.

Two #4-charting albums, 28 tracks! Bonus cuts include alternate takes of Little Honda and Don't Back Down.
Released just one month after the Surfer Girl album, Little Deuce Coupe was, incredibly, the band's fourth album in less than a year. Brian Wilson and the band responded by turning in arguably their most consistent effort to date--and a concept album, to boot. Deuce Coupe expanded the band's subject matter to encompass 1963 America's burgeoning love affair with hot rods, surrounding previously released cuts such as the title track, "409," and others with strong new material (much of it cowritten by Wilson and a DJ, Roger Christian). A highpoint: the a cappella James Dean tribute "A Young Man Is Gone" (a reworking of Bobby Troup's beautiful "Their Hearts Were Full of Spring"), a prime example of Wilson's arranging genius and the band's vocal prowess. All Summer Long was notable not only for racheting up the band's standards and essentially bidding farewell to the surf songs that inspired both their name and reputation, but also for going toe-to-toe with one of rock's most explosive phenomena--Beatlemania--and coming away victorious, with the single "I Get Around" soaring to No. 1 in the spring of 1964. Essentially another loose concept record (revolving around the innocent hedonistic pursuits of an idyllic SoCal summer) that takes its cue from the effervescent title track, it also documents Brian's restless creativity pushing the band toward its performing peak. Bonus takes include the superior single take of band staple "Be True to Your School," alternate takes of "Little Honda" and "Don't Back Down," and the slightly salacious outtake "All Dressed Up for School." Both albums have also been sonically burnished via 24-bit digital remastering. --Jerry McCulley

Their 1963 chart-topper (#7) and their car-crazy release from 1964 on 27-track extravaganza! a single version of Fun, Fun, Fun, a German version of in My Room and I Do are the bonus tracks.
Surfer Girl may have been the band's third album release, but it was the first to bear the imprimatur of founder and creative mainstay Brian Wilson as producer, and the difference is palpable from the confident opening tracks onward. That one-two combo, "Surfer Girl" and "Catch a Wave," also effectively serves as the blueprint for much of the Beach Boys' subsequent sound. On the former, Wilson's falsetto soars over a tender, yet musically sophisticated, ballad, while the latter features Mike Love's trademark twang urgently proselytizing SoCal surf, both over band harmonies that seemed to grow tighter and more adventurous with every cut. That artistic axis is revisited yet again on "Little Deuce Coupe" and "In My Room," the latter ballad showcasing Wilson's full artistic arsenal and giving an early glimpse into his introspective soul. The curiously titled "Shut Down, Part II" (a de facto sequel to an earlier hit EP) sought to further the band beyond its ironic sea-and-sun fetish (none but Dennis Wilson ever surfed) into the burgeoning hot-rod subculture as well. The results were understandably uneven, but the high points remain nothing short of spectacular, including the Love-propelled "Fun, Fun, Fun," Wilson's knowing nod to Phil Spector, "Don't Worry Baby," and the underrated "The Warmth of the Sun." Bonus cuts include the single mix of "Fun, Fun, Fun," a German-language version of "In My Room," and the previously unreleased, largely experimental "I Do" by Wilson and Love. Brian offers up a brief commentary on both albums in the notes, while David Leaf (author of the pioneering bio The Beach Boys and the California Myth) documents the music track-by-track. --Jerry McCulley
|'Tis the Season for Los Straitjackets
Lowest new price: $8.97
Lowest used price: $5.47
Brand: Los Straitjackets
The hippest disc for the holidays! Trim the tree, stuff the stocking, and kick your shoes off for some Christmas rocking with the mighty Los Straitjackets! If you like your Egg Nog cut with a little Tequila, this is the record for you. America's instrumentalists make a joyful noise while deconstructing Christmas classics like 'Here Comes Santa Claus' and 'God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen'. CD also includes the ultra-rare and classic Christmas 45 'Sleigh Ride' b/w 'Marshmallow World'.
The world would be a far colder place at Christmas without the electric guitar and Los Straitjackets' Tis the Season for is all the proof you need. Packed with 11 guitar-driven traditional songs and two originals, this memorable disc is a must-have for anyone who loves the sound of unaffected, basic guitar rock reminiscent of the Ventures and your favorite garage rock band. Adventurous, ambitious, and totally satisfying, the band takes on "Jingle Bell Rock" (making its guitars ring like a Byrds-fest) and a host of other chestnuts from "Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer" to the "La Bamba"-framed workout of "Feliz Navidad." Even the band's own "Christmas in Las Vegas" has those classic jingle-jangle guitar hooks that make this record a perennial holiday hit. --Martin Keller
|Live In Japan '65
Lowest used price: $22.99
In 1965, at the height of their popularity, the Ventures toured Japan, where to this day they are absolutely revered. The resulting live album, which Capitol finally released here in the States, is vintage Ventures, featuring not only surf standards like Walk Don't Run; Telstar , and Out of Limits , but ripping instrumental versions of '60s classics like The House of the Rising Sun; Love Potion No. 9 , and the Beatles' I Feel Fine . 28 tracks!
Recorded at the peak of the band's '60s popularity, this album is a collection of previously unreleased live tracks from Japan, where the Ventures have been stars for nearly 40 years; instrumental rock transcends every language barrier. The 29 songs collected here represent a virtual live greatest-hits package, cut on ancient, Buddy Holly-vintage three-track tape machines, including: "Caravan," "Pipeline," "Slaughter on Tenth Avenue" and "Journey to the Stars." A cover of the Searchers' version of Jackie DeShannon's "When You Walk in the Room" is a generous tip of the hat to the British invasion groups who all but buried surf music in the mid-'60s. Fun, lo-fi and best of all--live Ventures! --Dave Provost
