The Routers - who in reality included the formidable talents of Hal Blaine (drums), Leon Russell (keyboards) and Tommy Tedesco (guitar) among others - built upon the uniquely American trend of school spirit and the somewhat homogeneous sounds of pre British Invasion pop rock. This disc includes a dozen tracks ranging from cover versions of concurrently popular songs such as "Limbo Rock" - which had become a signature tune for the Champs as well as Chubby Checker - and Chris Montez's "Let's Dance".
