DESCRIPTION

When “Wide World Hits by The String-A-Longs” was issued by Atco in 1968, buyers could hardly have been aware that they were actually purchasing an instrumental LP by The Fireballs. The band were simply masquerading under the name of the String-A-Longs at Norman Petty's behest. This album is the centrepiece of this CD, plus the non-album track ‘Popi’ which was also issued under the String-A-Longs name. After much searching in the Clovis vaults we have been fortunate enough to discover an additional five titles - versions of the Doors' ‘Light My Fire’, the Supremes' ‘Love Child’, Johnny Nash's ‘Hold Me Tight’, Classic IV's ‘Stormy’ and Otis Redding's ‘Dock Of The Bay’ - which were originally recorded for the project but not included on the album. Here they are correctly credited to the Fireballs or George Tomsco. We’ve also discovered nine more previously unreleased Fireballs’ tracks, making this a veritable feast for the instrumental fan. All embellished by the experts at Pipeline Magazine’s authorative notes.
