CD Reviews

Perhaps the best known surf tune and in great stereo.
George B. Feist | Fresno, California USA | 09/07/1998

"No surf music fan should be without this double cd. Perhaps the most famous riff in surf music and one of the most perfect his tunes. The Chantays were there and are still around today still riding the waves of surf music. If you have just one surf album this should do it. George Feist aka THE DUKE OF THE DISCS...FRESNO, CALIFORNIA"
Should have only shown their best side

"The Chantays were just a handful of kids when they recorded some of the best surf guitar licks of all time. The title track "Pipeline" is a legend for good reason, as theirs is probably the best recording ever of this often-covered classic. There are other tracks on this that deserve equal recognition, including "El Conquistator," "Continental Missile," and the great instrumental cover of the Johnny Cash classic "Riders in the Sky."

The only real problem with this double-album is the first half of the first album, "Two Sides of the Chantays." Supposedly their "two sides" are surf guitar, and some sort of vocal original rock schmaltz...but believe me, they only have one side. As long as they don't sing, the Chantays are great...but most listeners will find themselves skipping through the first quarter of this CD."

"Along with the Surfaris, somebody might argue that the Chantays were at their very Best doing instrumentals. Most notably, the classic Iconic Surf anthem "Pipeline". This was true at the time they made this album where they too tried to do vocal numbers. I think they were under pressure to do another album as a follow-up to their monster hit "Pipeline". The problem was I think that they weren't really ready vocally for this, although they had nice but probably untrained voices. The big push for all of these groups was to go vocal like the "Beach Boys" and "Jan & Dean" who were selling a lot of records. From what I could hear, if given time I think they would have developed into something really special. But, it was not to be. What we have here is both of their two albums and there is some really good stuff in addition to the big hit "Pipeline". I am glad I got this set, and I'm really happy that it has been re-mastered to digital format for modern listening. Their albums are really hard to find if your looking for original LP's in good playing condition(and expensive)I have the Pipeline album I got on E Bay and paid top dollar. Here's a better alternative. I got the chance to see them play a few years ago at the Orange County Fair and consider myself lucky, they still rock!"
