The list author says: "Like oldies? I do! Here are some suggestions if you'd like to check out the style known as Carolina (or East Coast) beach music.. not to be confused with West Coast surf music! See my other Listmanias for that, as well as other related genres from this same era."
"Homegrown in South Carolina, the Swingin' Medallions had a hit in 1966 with the frat-friendly sound of "Double Shot (of My Baby's Love)," now a staple among beach classics with its famous organ hook."
"After working their hometown Philly circuit for a few years, The Tymes finally signed to Cameo-Parkway, garnering the label a small string of hits crowned by the harmonized ballad "So Much in Love" and their R&B take on "Wonderful! Wonderful!" popularized by Johnny Mathis."
"Another act on Philly's Cameo-Parkway label, the Orlons are best remembered for their dance-craze hit "The Wah-Watusi," although they did score with other songs like "South Street," "Don't Hang Up" and "Not Me.""
"This intro disc features several quintessential beach tunes, like the O'Kaysions' hit "Girl Watcher," but its limited tracklist amounts to only a sample of the style, just enough to get your toes wet!"
