Track 19 – “Tony Alva” by Opal Book Club

Tony Alva and Jay Adams are names synonymous with modern skateboarding. E. Blake Davis’ song about these fearless boarding pioneers is about as irreverent and off the wall as they were. Opal Book Club is one rockin’ trio and they drop in on this track like urethane wheels on a fresh dry southern California pool. This is an instant classic and I’m glad it was picked to be on the first MP3 Jackpot compilation.
