The Nobles

A nice one from 1963 or thereabouts. The Nobles were a hot reverby surf group with some classics such as Earthquake, Body Surf and Hiawatha later covered by the Surfaris amongst others.

As was sometimes common in those more innocent times as part of a recording deal the producer got to add his name to the group. Aki Aleong was one such producer and as far as I know did not actually add anything musical to the album.

I noticed that Aki was credited as an actor in the Jim Carrey flick Cable Guy. If you look up Aki on imdb he's had a varied career as producer and movie actor and he's still active at over seventy years of age. Anyhow here's the Nobles with one of my favourite vintage surf albums.
