An accessible introduction to surf rock

"If you wish to know whether or not you are a surf rock fan. Most of the biggest surf rock instrumental classics are included on this compilation. Just about every one of the major artists are included here, such as Dick Dale, the Ventures, and the Challengers. If you are already a diehard surf fanatic, you probably already own most (if not all) of the songs included here, so theres no need to pick this up. However, if you are only a casual fan (or if you need at least one album representing every major rock period in your collection), this is a good purchase. Each one of these songs presents why surf rock was one of the coolest genres ever. Even though its not an extremely varied style, it rocked and rocked hard through an era when many said rock 'n' roll was dead or dying (between when the original wave of rockabilly died out and before the British Invasion). If you enjoy this album, I suggest you pick up Rhino's Dick Dale compilation and if you can track it down their Surf box set. Like many genres which are becoming popular again, you'd have to search through a lot of dull and uninspired artifacts to get to the gold. This sampler represents the best of the best."

"Put on your swim trunks, get a nice tall drink, and set your clock back to about 1962...!!! These are fun instrumentals...classic rock instrumentals that everyone that claims to be a rock music enthusiast or expert should be required to know about. Complete your education in rock & roll...get this album and surf the memories....!!! Wipe out!! Enjoy!!"

"Die-hard Tom Petty/Mike Campbell fans will recognize "Diamond Head" and "Penetration" from previous concert footage/recordings (albeit bootlegs). Alright, I admit that's why I bought this. However, I'm hearing the other items for the first time and I admit I like "Mr. Rebel" and "Wipeout" should be easily recognizable. Sticker on outside of CD promises all lyrics included (in an INSTRUMENTAL album) -- all in all, good fun."
