Song Of The Day – “Draggin’ Deuce” by The Super Stocks

The Beach Boys weren’t the only game in town on Capitol Records in the early ’60s when it came to surf and hot rod tunes. There were numerous groups like The Kickstands, The Knights, The Hondells, The Superstocks and Mr. Gasser and the Weirdos…and they all had one member in common…Gary Usher. Usher was Brian Wilson’s first outside collaborator in the Beach Boys with writing credits on “In My Room,” “409” and the “Lonely Sea.” He also produced tracks for The Byrds, Dick Dale, Chad & Jeremy, The Surfaris, Sagittarius and the Firesign Theater. Here are the official version and the demo for The Super Stocks’ “Draggin’ Deuce.”
