Rudy and the Reno Bops on Blaze 104

Indian Rock / Cry, Cry (Blaze 104)

About two or three years after their debut on Rio, San Antonio's Rudy and the Reno Bops returned to vinyl with "Indian Rock," an instrumental, and a stronger version of "Cry, Cry" (originally on Rio). The release date here is probably 1960, so this single was being played at about the same time as the Royal Jesters' "My Angel of Love," Sunny and the Sun-Glows' "Just a Moment," and Doug Sahm's "Why, Why, Why" at the San Antonio record hops. These great, rare sides have never been reissued.
