CD Reviews

Poor Joe!
Johnny Heering | Bethel, CT United States | 02/22/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Back in 1962, two different surf groups had the idea to call themselves "The Surfaris", combining the two words in the title of the Beach Boys hit "Surfin' Safari". One of the groups was the first to record, and had an immediate hit with "Wipe Out". The other group said they had the name first, and they continued to call themselves "The Surfaris", until a court decision forced them to change their name to "The Original Surfaris". This particular CD features the group called "The Surfaris" that had a hit with "Wipe Out", and not "The Original Surfaris". As for the quality of the CD itself, it's actually quite good. It features 11 instrumentals and 7 vocal songs, and it's a heck of a lot of fun. The group had one of the best drummers in surf music, Ron Wilson, who was also a good singer. Their lead guitarist, Jim Fuller, was also very good. If you like surf music, you will enjoy this CD."
An awesome drummer = Ron Wilson

"I have had the pleasure of witnessing this first hand since I am Ron Wilson's daughter. Thanks for the excellent reviews. If you want to hear some of the best drumming in the world... get this cd!"

"If you like drums, you'll love this CD! I would like to know if anyone knows if there's any video out there of the Sufaris doing Wipe Out? I'd love to see him actually doing it!"
