On the whole - I’d rather be surfing. This was originally written by the Surfaris, and the covered by the Ventures. I was curious how the drumming would be written as notes in the sheet music -or if the single lyric “WIPEOUT” would be in there at the top- it wasn’t. Still, a classic that upon hearing it can turn any flat surface into a drum kit. #found #sheetmusic #surfing #thesurfaris #drumsolo #1960s #foundastory #estatesalefinds

STOP! in the name of history hunting!

I picked this gem up a few weeks ago. This first edition (for 1967) of the Supremes fan club news letter. The big announcement was the release of their new single “Now you’re gone...”. And a tease for a possible movie deal. A neat piece of 60s music history with a separate letter asking club members to remit 50 cents for the next to editions.
