Best Single-Disc Surf Music Compilation Ever.

"I loved surf music even before "Pulp Fiction" brought it (and John Travolta) back in a big way. I'm still trying to figure out how they managed to leave "Rumble" (the all-time coolest instrumental tune in the history of pop music) by Link Wray & his Wray Men off the "Pulp Fiction" soundtrack (it was played during Vincent & Mia's "uncomfortable silence" bit in Jackrabbit Slim's, as all true movie geeks know).
Fortunately it and ever other surf tune you've ever heard to the point of cliche' nausea is on this collection. Every guitar player from the age of 33-45 was probably taught half the tunes on this CD when they were first starting out (especially "Wipeout" and the infinitely cool "Pipeline").
The standard Dick Dale tunes are also included, as are a couple of Beach Boys/Jan & Dean tunes for good measure...but the strength of this CD are the instrumentals. If you're a fan of the genre at all, or even mildly interested in it, this is easily the best CD you can get in terms of all-inclusive, deadly cool tunes."
Has most of the Essentials, worth a buy

"I was looking for a bunch of instumentals and when I would type in a name of a surf instrumental, this would always pop up with other albums, I kept skipping over it because Jenny McCarthy was on the front so I thought it's probably rehashed crap, that MTV spit out. Well I was wrong, although this is not a definitive surf compilation disc, it does have alot of the essentials on one disc and they are the ORIGINAL RECORDINGS, just don't expect linear notes or a correct timeline (order they were released on the disc). Defintely worth the purchase price, and a great disc to throw in your Stereo when you go to the beach. 4 1/2 stars"
Best 50-60' surf or beach party compilation, + jenny pics!

"If you're on your 30's and you don't enjoy this cd, you're dead or you've never heard radio in your life.There are great songs in this cd I heard as a kid, but didn't know their names or who played them, like 'Walk dont run' and the Tarantino-movie-famous 'Misirlou'(Pulp Fiction), others by Beach Boys and Ventures.I played this cd for the 1st time at the computer center of my university (I am studying a MBA in Peru) and my mates made me play the whole album for three times in a row. Enuff said"
