Jordanaires - Malibu Run (2:04)
Recently, while scrounging for 45s out in the Atlanta suburbs I found this mystifying head-scratcher by the Jordanaires. Who would've figured these tame but talented background vocalists for Rip Chords wannabes with a passion for hot rod sounds? Certainly not I. And how about the fact that this extraordinarily unlikely disc was produced by Don Law and Frank Jones, Columbia's in-house go-to guys for classic Nashville country sounds by people like Ray Price, Carl Butler and Pearl, Johnny Cash, Marty Robbins, Lefty Frizzell and others. And I have no idea who author R. Wilkins is but I wonder if he's somehow related to Bucky Wilkin (no "s" at the end) who wrote and recorded a substantial body of hot rod work in Nashville as a member of Ronny & The Daytonas.

I while back I wrote a blog about Jimmie McConville's amazing contribution to the Instrumental genre; Scorpion. It was released under his own name, and later by his band The Carnations.
Well, as an adden-dumb to that post, I present this. An outright theft of Scorpion by a band called The Dawn Beats. Not sure what year this is from, probably early 60's.
Here is the original post:
And here is Road_Block.
Notice the similarities...
