The best representation of all surf music
spacemanz | CT | 12/19/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A quintessential must-have for any surf music fan, this collection is the best representation, so far, of the broad spectrum of styles that made up this genre of music!! Everyone from Dick Dale, The Ventures, The Chantays to lesser known acts such as The Crossfires, The Astronauts, and more are laid out in this beautiful eighteen song album. It features some of the greatest early guitar work as well as some hard to find surf instrumental gems!!"
The Holy Grail!
D. Pike | the Mojave Desert, Calif. | 05/19/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Simply the best instrumental surf music compilation ever produced. John Blair (author of The Illustrated Discography of Surf Music) has collected a CD full of pure gems.

Excellent reverberated surf: Dick Dale, The Surfaris, The Chantays, The Lively Ones, The Ventures and many many more!

A reverberated-guitar masterpiece...if you ever see one used, BUY IMMEDIATELY!"
The surf bible

"When I was 17, I heard this album, and figured that only my friends knew about this stuff. When our band went on the road, we discovered that every surf band knew these songs. We also discovered that these versions are often the best ones. This disc contains the essence of 60's surf. Raw, driving and drenched in reverb.

go ahead, buy it.
you won't regret it, unless your copy gets scratched, and you have to buy a new one."
