Saturday morning tunes: The latest from America's premiere surf combo!

Or at least that's what it says on the cover of the late 1990's Blue Stingrays' “Surf-N-Burn” album -- which Wikipedia outs as the work of The Heartbreakers, Tom Petty's band, taking a surf-rock during the off season.

Which explains why the band is so amazingly tight This is a slick surf medley of "Goldfinger" and the "James Bond theme" written for the very first Bond movie, both composed by John Barry.

Hat-tip to June at my favorite coffee shop, who declared this whole week to be “Surf Music Week.”

If you're reading this in FB Notes, you'll need to click View Original Post to see the video.

This is the second appearance of “Goldfinger” on p3 Saturday Morning Tunes. The first was a great live performance by Shirley Bassey -- which I can no longer find on my own friggin' blog.(Not this one, although it's awfully good.) Ah well. Almost 7 years ago, when p3 was launched, tags and such indexical luxuries were the equivalent of the Jetsons' moving aerial sidewalks.
