Heads up to Oracle: More Sounds for Spies
While guitar names such as Duane Eddy, Chet Atkins, Santo and Johnny and others are much more familiar to fans of the early age of rock and roll, the sound of Al Caiola is very much a part of the music of that era. Only two of his single releases dented the top 100 of the pop charts but his albums were a part of the music of the 60's for the entire decade. And his guitar can be heard on many of the tracks of big recording stars of the era such as Frankie Avalon ("Venus" and "De De Dinah"), Fabian, Bobby Vinton, Connie Francis and others. Some of the most recognizable tunes he recorded were TV and motion picture themes along with covers of recordings made popular by other artists. One of the all round guitarists of the era. Plenty of his stuff here and all over the blogosphere so get crackin' twang fans. This will whet your appetite.
