THE AVENGERS VI - Real Cool Hits White Vinyl LP


Product Information

The Avengers VI "Real Cool Hits" limited edition white vinyl repress - includes free digital download

were a clean-cut surf band from Anaheim, Calif., whose one and only album, Real Cool Hits, was issued in 1966 as a promo for Good Humor ice cream. The group's name wasn't even mentioned on the cover although it was pictured on the kick drum. The LP, originally issued on the Mark 56 label, was sold from the Good Humor ice cream trucks and has since become a highly-valued collector's item. In 2008 an original copy went for $315 in an online auction. What set THE AVENGERS VI apart from many of the other surf groups was their superior musicianship. Guitarist Jim Ferguson was reported to practice eight hours a day while organist Mike DeYoung had formal musical training and a wide knowledge of classical music. The group's repertoire, which encompassed covers of popular surf instrumentals, mood music, movie themes and some first rate originals, attracted both teens and adults to their appearances in southern California. THE AVENGERS VI had largely been forgotten, except by die-hard collectors, until Bacchus Archives reissued Real Cool Hits on both vinyl and CD in 2001. The vinyl reissue has itself become collectible, bringing prices of $30 and up, which is why we've decided to repress this gem! (Thanks to Bill Kay – All That Jazz blogspot for the write-up)
