Our good friend Butch Hendricks of The Carolina Tikis has recently released a number of obscure and great regional tunes on a YouTube channel. Most of the cuts are over 50 years old, seldom heard and many previously unreleased. Even those which have seen release are now 45rpm collectors items.
If you dig authentic beach music, blue-eyed soul, tight horn sections and great show band sounds, you should dive in to this rare collection. Butch was associated with all of the groups represented as lead guitarist. He has appeared on Riffin’ live in the studio for interviews and to share his music collection in recent years. Now he is making these fantastic tunes available to the public.
A fine contribution to our regional music heritage, enjoy and share widely.
