The Super Stocks !

The Super Stocks were one of the better and more interesting studio creations of producer-composer Gary Usher.
Usher assembled a core of regular players, including Glen Campbell, Richie Podolor, and Paul Johnson on guitars; Hal Blaine on drums; and Steve Douglas on sax.
He handled some of the early vocals himself, with Chuck Girard, Ritchie Burns, and Joe Kelly also singing; and Girard eventually took over most of the vocal chores.
The Super Stocks were among Usher's more fondly remembered surf "bands" of this period, and one of the more ubiquitous, with three complete LPs to their credit as well as appearances on two popular compilation albums.

Syd was one of my earliest music obsessions. "Lucifer Sam" is one of his best tunes. Another legend passes on.
