Fans of this group will want to know about the cover art, in this case a photo of a blonde tossing her hair around. Is she supposed to be Southern? That would tie in with what seems to be the theme of the "More Memphis" subtitle of this disc.

Not the first but definitely the most popular rock instrumental combo, the Ventures scored several hit singles during the 1960s – most notably "Walk-Don't Run" and "Hawaii Five-O" – but made their name in the growing album market, covering hits of the day and organizing thematically linked LPs. Almost 40 Ventures' albums charted, and 17 hit the Top 40. And though the group's popularity in America virtually disappeared by the 1970s, their enormous contribution to pop culture was far from over; the Ventures soon became one of the most popular world-wide groups, with dozens of albums recorded especially for the Japanese and European markets…

This long-awaited disc by The Concussions is here! A dozen raw, twangy surf and guitar instrumental tunes, delivered by guys that are masters of their instruments and know their way around a recording studio. Hailing from Grand Rapids, Michigan, this combo is led by Dick Chiclet on lead guitar, who also produced recorded and mixed this release. His production style, which favors the use of vintage gear and is inspired by Joe Meek and others in the past and present that have stuck to analog recording techniques. This all goes towards delivering a disc that will appeal to surf and vintage instrumental rock n' roll aficionados, as well as those that are just looking to move and groove on the dance floor. If you love the early 60s Brit instro sound of The Tornados or Shadows, or the more modern instrumental recordings of The Kaisers, you will absolutely flip over this disc! The disc art is truly out of this world - incredible illustration work by Shawn Dickinson!

24 tracks. Shazam! features two dozen vocal-free (give or take the occasional rebel yell etc) nuggets written by the great Lee Hazlewood. Star of the show is twang master Duane Eddy with three great tracks: the title number, the menacing 'Stalkin' and 'This Town', a lesser-known 45 from Hazlewood's stint writing and producing gems for Nancy Sinatra and others at Reprise Records. Other key artists include guitar wiz Al Casey, top Wrecking Crew drummer Hal Blaine, renowned arranger,orchestra leader Jack Nitzsche and ace surf combo the Astronauts, not forgetting Dick Dale with his axe-shredding version of 'Angry Generation'.

Originally issued on Dolton, this instrumental classic was reissued briefly in 1990 on CD by EMI. The Ventures have a blast with unique covers of secular Christmas songs: each instrumental borrows riffs from popular mid-'60s hits, incorporating them into their twangy guitar yule melodies.

As compilations go this is up there with the best. 28 tracks of the Beach Boys at the top of their form (or close to the top, anyway). And at the price this is great value. It's easy to forget just how important the Beach Boys were to the progression of popular music in the 1960s. Brian Wilson used to watch what the Beatles were doing and try to match them on the artistic level. The Beach Boys 'Pet Sounds' was born of this rivalry and Paul McCartney regarded it as one of the greatest popular-music albums ever made. It spurred the Beatles to complete 'Revolver' and then make 'Sgt Pepper'. Brian Wilson was the Beach Boys' creative genius and when he broke down they lost their leadership position. However they left a huge repertoire of major hits, many of which are captured on this compilation. Some of the most finely crafted pop-music recordings ever made are here. Pete Doggett has written a paragraph in the accompanying booklet giving a little background to each of the tracks, which makes for interesting reading.

Insanitizers music is all about fun, for all ages. It takes listeners on involving adventures with frenetic energy, tension, mystery, and drama. Most recent recordings use “clean and chimey but silky” guitar tones, but there is plenty of variation between songs. You can hear influences from classical, surf, flamenco, rockabilly, and punk styles. In July 2016 “Guitar Fun” won the national award for “Best Rock Instrumental Album.” “Insanitizers deploy their marvelous talent for the guitar to the interpretation of a modern vibe – what results is a completely novel experience of a genre you thought you knew and understood.”

Tikiyaki 5-0 's debut EP is the Orchestra's surf garage band little brother. Stripped down and more raw, 5-0 turns up the volume a bit, and the reverb a whole lot , taking The Tikiyaki sound and breaking it down to a more back to basics approach. Tikiyaki 5-0, is the smaller, pared down version of Tikiyaki Orchestra featuring core members …..Jim Bacchi on guitar, Brian Kassan on Keys and guitar, Jonpaul Balak on Bass, and Pablo Baza on drums…
Mixing tradional 60's style surf with an exotica feel, the band kicks up the energy level on 5-0 original "Supernova" and the Zorba and the Greeks' cult classic "Shockwave" with tons of frenetic pounding surf beats and a hi level reverb assault…

California may be the largest state in the Union, but it's only one state nuzzling one ocean, with only so many people living near the coastline, and a small minority of them have attempted to navigate waves on a board, much less possess the fetching physique to do so in public. Obviously, then, surf music isn't for surfers. If it were, Rhino would put out a greatest-hits EP instead of a four-disc box set. Cowabunga! is all the permanent-wave stuff most people will ever need.

The question of whether or not Pet Sounds is one of the greatest pop music albums of all time isn’t tied specifically to Capitol deciding to release a 50th anniversary edition. That point is supported by the fact that millions of people still enjoy the album.

Although they were a pretty fair surf group, the Crossfires' real claim to fame is that the group somehow evolved into the pop/folk-group stars the Turtles in the mid-'60s. Before that transformation, they managed to release two local singles, and a fair amount of unreleased studio and live material surfaced many years later…

Stray Cats are an American Rockabilly band formed in 1980 by guitarist/vocalist Brian Setzer (Bloodless Pharaohs/Brian Setzer Orchestra), bassist Lee Rocker and Slim Jim Phantom (drums) in the Long Island town of Massapequa, New York. The group had numerous hit singles in the UK, Australia and the U.S. including "Stray Cat Strut", "Sexy and 17", "I Won't Stand in Your Way", "Bring it Back Again", and "Rock This Town", which the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has listed as one of the 500 most important songs in the history of Rock and Roll. In 2004, the Stray Cats reunited for a month-long tour of Europe. A live album culled from those concerts, Rumble In Brixton, their first ever official live release since 80s, is a double disc containing three never before released songs, a brand new studio track (their first since 1991) called "Mystery Train Kept A Rollin'", and a 24-page deluxe booklet containing rare vintage photos of the band's early years.
