Overview

Mr. Gasser & the Weirdos were not an actual band, but a pseudonym for a studio group that revolved around the artwork and persona of custom car painter Ed "Big Daddy" Roth, i.e. Mr. Gasser, known for his iconic cartoon creations of monsters driving hot rods. Like so many of the quickie surf/hot rod albums of the era, the best studio musicians were utilized, including Glen Campbell, James Burton, Steve Douglas, Carol Kaye, and Earl Palmer, while producer and arranger Gary Usher manned the controls. A total of three Mr. Gasser LPs were issued by Capitol, the second, Rods n' Ratfinks, in 1964. Song titles such as "Hearse with a Curse," "The Ballad of Eefin Fink," "Fink Rod, 409," and "Three Kats in a Tub" give you a good idea of what to expect from this fun, limited-edition reissue from Sundazed.
