"Do The Surfer Stomp"

(Bruce Johnston / Joe Hartnett)
Bruce Johnston song
Album: Do The Surfer Stomp single (1962)

This is a confusing one. The original single consisted of a vocal side (Part 1) and an instrumental side (Part 2).
A longer live version was recorded on Bruce's Surfer's Pajama Party album as simply the "Surfer Stomp", or when sped up and released as a single in the UK, "The Original Surfer Stomp".
This is then not to be confused with "Moon Shot", which apparently was also released as a single called "The Original Surfer Stomp".
