THE RAYBEATS - Roping Wild Bears EP 81 w Guitar Beat LP 81 w It's Only A Movie LP 83 w DANNY AMIS - Whiplash! EP 82 w The Overtones - Red Checker Wagon 7 80 w LOS STRAITJACKETS - SING ALONG WITH CD 01

REPOST Request:  I am combining all these old posts as one although forget I had the James White and the Blacks too.  I moved some of my comments from the old posts to the comments and here is from very first post of my Raybeats rip off a cassette I had in high school:  Another spin off band from James White and the Blacks...anyone GOT the EP to share???!!  Band also had Danny Amis from the Overtones before he got kicked out to more success in Los Straitjackets.  And what a great tune about one of the lakes in the Twin Cities chain of lakes...Surfing Lake Calhoun which was ludicris at the time but now is filled with Wind 'Surfers'.

A big thank you to who emailed me these four songs a couple weeks ago after I had posted this band featuring Danny Amis on gits! I had figured there were more tunes to it until I looked it up last night and saw the songs were complete so I grabbed the cover shots at discogs today.

From what I understand, The Raybeats were based out of New York.

Thank you!!

Some killer Agent Orange style instrumentals! He was in the Overtones and the Raybeats and went on to fame and fortune in Los Straitjackets. Here is a great link about the man:

I was very excited to see this one last week at Goodwill because Danny Amis from the Raybeats and the Overtones plays the DiPinto guitars along with Eddie Angel.. I had posted Danny's solo record to very good comments long ago. Also maybe my timing is good what with Jonderblog's post of Kingbee's legend Jamie James also in Dennis Quaid's band after Harry Dean Stanton died. Also coincidently, another blog I follow, SPANISHBOMBS posted the Kingbees album as well all within 2-3 days of each other. Now you have some great guitar rock-a-billy type bands to enjoy because next week is all perhaps boring USA historic big band and marches type stuff for the 4th of July fireworks.
