AllMusic Review by

For an album that yielded not a single hit (and which was one of five long-players released by the band in 1962), Mashed Potatoes and Gravy (later retitled The Ventures' Beach Party) is one hell of an enjoyable album and still a very solid and substantial album, over 40 years later. The group's sound was lean and mean all the way through, whether doing a respectful cover of George Gershwin's "Summertime" or raucous renditions of "Lucille," "Poison Ivy," and "Hully Gully." Even the seeming throwaway numbers, such as "Hot Summer (Asian Mashed)," with its faux-Eastern embellishments, and the soaring "Spudnik," are played with such virtuosity and spirit that they demand attention, and there are a surprising number of vocals on this album, albeit mostly of the nature of choruses on songs like "The Wah-Watusi" and "Hully Gully."

This place is great! Found a lot of what I was looking for, prices were very fair so I was able to pick up a lot more records. The employee there, Dustin was very kind and helped me find some stuff and try out one of the records I was on the fence about. Definitely recommend dropping by!
