I Saw Her In A Mustang
 
I Saw Her In A Mustang Quantity in Basket: None
Price: $16.00
Artist: The Vandals
 
 
Quantity:
 

A whole lotta profane!  Some pretty cool Florida garage punk that could have been massive if their single wasn’t banned from so many stations.  Finally The Vandals get a retrospective, complete with their snowflake melting “I Saw Her In A Mustang”, three more studio nuggets plus loads of live takes, including four covers of the Fab Four! The Vandals originated in Hollywood, Florida in 1964, the same year that saw The British Invasion kick into high gear, the price of a Coke and a hot dog was 49 cents, and the Ford Mustang was born. Several original songs distinguished The Vandals from the plethora of local groups at the time, and the risqué “I Saw Her In A Mustang” was the catalyst that created a huge South Florida following for the group. Sadly it was the incendiary title track’s racy lyrical content that likely kept the band from blowing up. Against these odds, The Vandals made an unmistakable mark on the 60’s garage scene with a handful of rare singles and raucous live performances. Track listing: “Mystery”, “We're The Vandals”, “I Saw Her In A Mustang”, “The Joker”, “Norwegian Wood” (The Beatles), “Alright” (The Coastliners), “Another Girl” (The Beatles), “Glad All Over” (Dave Clark Five), “You're Gonna Lose That Girl”, “Ooh Poo Pah Doo (Ike & Tina Turner), “Charlie Brown” (The Coasters), “Lies” (The Knickerbockers), “Stop! Get A Ticket” (The Clefs Of Lavender Hill”, “The Night Before” (The Beatles), “I Need You” (The Kinks) anfd “Do You Love Me” (The Contours).  EXCELLENT!!
