CD Reviews

Some great cuts, and some trash
(3 out of 5 stars)

"The album is a good deal if you are looking for the rare surf instrumentals it contains, like Mr. Moto and Mr. Rebel. Most of the re-recorded songs (particularly the Jan & Dean stuff) sounds terrible. But with 32 songs on the CD, I found enough great original surf classics to still be glad I bought it."
It's a rip-off.
(2 out of 5 stars)

"What seemed like a promising collection of surf music turned out to be quite a disappointment. Terrible sound quality and bad mixes throughout. Jan & Dean, the Beach Boys, Wipe-Out by the Safaris and other recordings are mutilated."
Most songs are the original versions but BEWARE!
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Kahuna Classics seems like a great collection of surf hits. Except for one thing--some of the recordings are the dreaded "NEW STEREO RECORDINGS." I feel this is somewhat deceptive but at least at the store you can read it before you buy it. If you order this CD you won't know till it arrives. The only other negative comment is that the Beach Boy cuts are from their first recording sessions. Not their best work. Fortunately, Miserlou and many of the other selections are the same great tunes we know and love. I gave it 3 out of 5 stars because only a few of the tunes are NEW. But listening to Papa Oom Mow Mow redone was almost PAINFUL! Surfin' Bird Forever!!"
