CD Reviews

Great surf instrumental... but look for the 2fer
Michael Browning | 05/22/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

""Surf Drums" was one of my favorite surf intrumental albums, right up there with Dick Dale's "Surfer's Choice," the Surfaris' "Play," and the Sentinals' "Big Surf." The Lively Ones' lead guitarist, Jim Masoner, while maybe not the most technically gifted guitarist of the era, played with as much energy as Mr. Dale himself. As a stand-alone album, "Surf Drums" is fine, but look for the package that pairs it with "Surf Rider" for the best value. For the music, I give this 4 stars, but it gets zero for the packaging. This and other Lively Ones collections have consistently misidentified several of these tracks. The running order on this CD matches that of my original vinyl LP, so with apologies to Johnny H. who tried to correct the running order, this is the TRUE track listing per the original album:

1. Tuff Surf
2. Ric-A-Tic
3. Wild Weekend
4. Surf Drums
5. Shootin' the Pier
6. Mr. Moto
7. Bustin' Surfboards
8. Stoked
9. Surfer Boogie
10. Rumble
11. 40 Miles of Bad Road
12. Hillbilly Surf

Now, if only someone would reissue Bob Vaught & the Renegaids' "Surf Crazy" ....
