R&B / surf instrumental ~ Detroit 1960

Share Music - Free Audio -

R&B instrumental group, Nick and the Soundbarriers were from Detroit, Michigan. They recorded just three 45s, including this New York Tee Pee label 45. Not always a fan of 50s/early 60s saxophone-heavy, dance instrumentals, but 'Rainbow' has a speedy, early surf, R&B dance sound that moves in the right direction.
Their first recording/45, 'Big Nick' was on the Detroit-Northwest Sound Company label, also recorded in 1960. The third, 'Freeway Hot Rod,' on the NY-Fleetwood label... Other than that, can't find much more information on this band.
This is the b-side flip to: 'Spinning Wheel Twist.'
