THE WITCH DOCTORS - Death Ray '63 (Dionysus ID074538) 1992
The Witch Doctors were a short lived group from the L.A and Orange County areas of CA and contained ex members of The Untold Fables (Paul Carey) and The Fuzztones (Jake Cavaliere). They did, however, release some singles and an album that are well worth tracking down.
'Death Ray '63' is a spooky Ventures inspired organ wig-out and is my pick out of this excelent four song EP recorded at the famed Wallyphonic Studios in Pasadena. The other stand out is their killer version of 'I'm So Restless' which is far superior than the original from 1965 by Dutch beat group Cuby and the Blizzards.
