The Blue Stingrays keep their identities secret and have never played a show. This record, perhaps their only release (though the CD claims they put out three other, impossible-to-find records in the '60s, which is probably as true as their claim of inventing surf music), is a pleasant, mellow stroll through Polynesia and beyond. Whoever these guys are, they can definitely play their instruments. There are several great songs here including their gorgeous, surfy take on the Goldfinger theme. Heavenly.
