Band: Various

Label: Bear Family

Format: CDD

Catalogue Number: BCD17742


• Summer, sun, the beach and a great attitude to life – all this is reflected in a fascinating Bear Family Records® CD compilation, and the cool sounds of surf and rock ‘n’ roll instrumentals.
• • Californian beach life also means the dangerous confrontation with the power of the water and the waves and pimped-up vehicles which surf fans could drive to the seaside in the USA in the 1960s.
• • Great hits and numerous rarities from the 1959 to 1966 period.
• • In addition to stars such as Dick Dale, Jan & Dean, Duane Eddy and The Ventures, there is plenty of room here for lesser-known artists and bands who produced great surf sounds.
• • The spectrum ranges from classics such as Misirlou, the title track Surf Beat and Pipeline to the rare cover version of Driftin’ by the Danish band The Go-Getters.
• • Also: many rare originals that were covered by later generations of surf bands.
• • Detailed liner notes by surf icon John Blair with rare photos and illustrations.
