"Beat Guitar" / "Driftwood"

ARTIST: WAILERS, The
SERIAL#: 375
DATE: 1960

MISC NOTES:

These two tracks were originally Issued on  an "artist photo"  picture label. The Wailers' picture was the "second pose" to be used on Golden Crest 45 rpm releases.*

The photo on the original  label shows guitarists Richard Dangel (far right) and John Greek (second from left) looking at one another toward the center of the band. This pic was taken in July, 1959 when the group appeared on Dick Clark's American Bandstand television program in Philadelphia, PA.

In the original shot, Clark is standing  with a microphone where the two guitarists are looking. He is facing Greek. As such, Greek, in particular, and also Dangel are looking toward Clark - with at least Greek -  responding to him during an interview. Drummer Mike Burke is standing in the background.

On the record label  Clark's image was removed. In his place, drummer, Mike Burke, is shown leaning forward over his drum kit.
