Surfin’ the Turf #9: Happy Guitar

I continue to widen my reach for instrumental rock hits from the 60’s. Here is “Happy Guitar” which was released by the Spotnicks in 1963. The Spotnicks are an instrumental surf-rock group from Sweden, formed in 1961. Along with the Shadows and the Ventures they are counted as one of the most famous instrumental bands during the 1960s. They were noted for wearing “space suit” costumes on stage. They have released 42 albums, selling more than 18 million records, and — like the Ventures and Shadows — are still active. They never charted in the US, so not many people here are familiar with them. However, they had considerable success in the UK.
