Dragsville by The Woofers

Dragsville, by The Woofers, is a pretty good album. In addition to not-too-bad versions of "Little Deuce Coupe" and "Drag City" we're treated to eight other decent exploitation-themed originals. Not up there with The Beach Boys or Jan & Dean, but a solid third-tier offering, I'd say.

Ken Burroughs suggests that this was recorded by The Dovells, given the Cameo-Parkway-Wyncote pedigree. Sounds logical to me!

Tracks:

1. Drag City
2. Hot Rod Races
3. Mister Hot Rod
4. Wailin' Wheels
5. Ridin' The Rails
6. Little Deuce Coupe
7. Bench Racer
8. Dragster On The Prowl
9. Cool Bash
10. Down By The Draggin' Strip

Your comment about the Dovells is right on I used to have a 45 of the Dovells doing Dragster on the Prowl and if I remember it sounded like the tune on the LP.

I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT LITTLE DEUCE COUPE AND OTHER SONGS ON DRAGSVILLE WERE DONE BY "THE TEACHERS" A&R PRODUCTION BY ROY STRAIGIS. I AM ONE OF THE TEACHERS . WE ALSO DID QUITE A FEW OF THE TUNES ON BEATLEMANIA , ANOTHER WYNCOTE BUDGET ALBUM AS THE LIVERPOOLS.
