During the final days of 1963, David Marks was a very busy 15 year-old. As if touring all over the US and recording 4 hit LPs with his band, The Beach Boys, wasn’t enough – David also began recording his original music with a local garage band, The Jaguars, which he quickly renamed The Marksmen.
By the end of that year, David abandoned the Beach Boys and focused solely on the Marksmen. The band was first signed to A&M Records and then later, by Warner Brothers; however, the Marksmen suffered the fate of being on the radar of a revenge-seeking Murry Wilson, who all but killed the growing momentum of the promising act.
For the few who have heard these lost gems, David Marks is revered for his progressive hybrid of South Bay Surf with British Invasion influences that was way ahead of its time. For the first time, the complete David Marks & the Marksmen catalog - including studio out-takes and alternate versions and plenty of previously unreleased tracks - is available on the 17 track CD.
