1. Product Details

Seven inch vinyl pressing. Brought to light in the 21st century on Psychemagiks Magik Sunrise compilation in 2013 House On The Rock is a shimmering sophisticated groove with a strong West Coast sound - songwriter Rob Mehl spend nearly three decades between Southern California and Hawaii where the surf was too irresistible to leave behind for very long. He first moved to Oahu in 1958 a year before Hawaii became the 50th state. The equally strong Taste And See on the flipside provides the only lyrical reference to Hawaii mangos and papayas got flavors of their own while remaining in line with Mehls smooth West Coast vibe - he hired two of Chuck Mangiones colleagues for the recording guitarist Steve OConner and horn player John Rekevics. Surprisingly Mehls original vision was to do an album of traditional Hawaiian music but one day a friend told him hes too haole and the idea just wont work. I was crushed I was devastated. Taste And Sea it was gonna be this mix of songs Id written and kanaka wai wai Hawaiian songs. Photographer Steve Wilkings of the recently shuttered Surfer Magazine took pictures of Mehl surfing for the album cover. But label executives in California decided to use an illustration of a plate fork and spoon instead. They were thinking of a bigger audience. All I was thinking of was my friends - cmon nobodys gonna buy this but my friends - and Id probably just give it to em. The original LP now sells for 200 online.
