    Inertia by The Hustlers, 1964. The inspiration for everything that followed..

    Another one that I dug. These guys couldn't keep time worth a darn. Still love it.

    I was one of the 10 people who bought that disc since it featured tracks from the Downey label which is big with us surf collectors.
    For years I was searching for a 45 single of Cecilia Ann by the Surftones on Midget with all these collectors giving me weird looks, at least they came though with the Bongo Teens album on Original Sound. I'm surprised it wasn't bootlegged in Europe for all those surf collectors. You had me fooled. Excellent comp too.

    Midget. That was the name of the label. How I came up with that I cannot remember.

    Midget Farrelly was a pro surfer from the '60s. Btw, I was also one of the 1o people who bought this CD in 1989.

    By the way, anyone who has this actual record, I think it's worth the big bucks.. Just a head's up.

    I've never seen a copy of it in real life..
