CD Reviews

Surf Geniuses in Guitar Attack!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I love this album. I have the original vinyl that I bought back in '83, '84. Great surf instrumentals, energy and technique all there. I wonder if this is the American or British version, however. The British version of "Pirahna Salad" beats the American version hands down, for some reason. And Danny something-or-other (immortalized in the db's song "Amplifier" know, "Danny went and hung himself today...") in this is now in Los Straitjackets, who cover "The Calhoun Surf" on their first album! If you like surf or instrumental rock (not always the same thing), then buy this album now."

"Guitar Beat is the best Surf album of the 80's. Remarkable depth and oddly ahead of its time. The Ventures meet Link Wray in NYC during the height of the city's late 70's Rock'n'Roll renaissance. Where is Jody Harris now that we really need him. These guys spawned The Mermen, Los Straitjackets, and Huevos Rancheros almost as much as their 60's predecessors .
"Calhoun Surf " may be the ultimate driving song. (Los Straitjackets' later version is worth getting. )"

"If you like to drive fast. If you like guitar surf music. If you like the soundtrack of james bond movies, you'll like this album. all instrumental, guitar-surf music on amphetimines.
If you already you have this album, you might want to listen to a band called BAZOOKA-the same thing with saxaphone, or the VENTURES - In Space."
