YOU CAN PLAY ALONG WITH THE FIRST TWO VIDEOS! I wonder what Mark will have in store for us! And the 3rd video is the terrific Peter Luongo leading an ensemble from his LUE sessions!
"Sea Cruise" was initially covered by Frankie Ford in 1959, with a top-20 hit, using Smith's original backing track. Released on Ace Records, it sold over one million copies, gaining gold disc status. The single included ship's bell and horn sound-effects, as well as boogie piano, a driving horn section and a beat that anticipated ska music.
