On this CD you get the cream of five great Surf bands. Del-Fi artists the Sentinals, the Impacts, the Centurions, the Lively Ones and Dave Myers and the Surftones. These bands were some of the best and most faithful to the instrumental Surf music genre. These guys played awesome Surf music, but were mostly not well-known! So this disc is a real find for the Surf fan who has lots of Ventures, Surfaris and Dick Dale and is looking for something a bit more pure and exotic.

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.

Formed in 1965, the now legendary California band, Papa Doo Run Run, quickly discovered their forte - they sounded like the Beach Boys! That sound led them to surf music icons, Jan & Dean, and from 1976-80 Papa toured North America with the duo. In the 80s Papa graduated from J&D to the Beach Boys, and toured and recorded with members of that band throughout the next 2 decades. The group also had an unprecedented 15-year run as the "Celebrity House Band" at Disneyland from 1975-90! In the mid 80's Papa Doo became the darlings of corporate entertainment, performing at up to 150 corporate events a year! Their fun packed show is still a favorite of dozens of Fortune 500 companies. Their ground breaking CD “California Project” (1985) exploded onto the Billboard Hot 100 Chart at no. 17 and earned the band their second Gold Record and a Grammy Nomination.

From the concerts "John Fogerty's All-Stars, Chaplin Stage, Hollywood, CA, 5-31-1985" and from the "Henry J. Kaiser Auditorium 26-11-1989" As the singer/songwriter and guitarist for Creedence Clearwater Revival, John Fogerty created a monumental and mythic American music. Drawing equally from rockabilly, country, and blues, Fogerty developed a distinctive brand of rock & roll and a formidable songbook. After CCR split in 1972, Fogerty didn't run away from that sound, but he avoided the band's hits due to a legal dispute with his former record label. "The Old Man Down the Road," the hit single that kicked off Fogerty's successful solo career, arrived in 1985, a full decade after his last hit, but the song and its accompanying Centerfield album pushed him back into the spotlight. He remained a force on record and on the road, where he eventually worked old CCR tunes into his set lists.

In the face of the legend that he once was, it's very fashionable to dismiss Eric Burdon's '70s-and-later output as little more than an afterthought – which may or may not be true. But from the moment I Used to Be an Animal kicks into groove, it's clear that Burdon has spent the last few years doing more than kicking over old traces. The putative soundtrack to the singer's recently published autobiography, I Used to Be an Animal chases that band's career through its own chops and changes, pitfalls and high points, but without ever actually looking back.

This is the fourth release in the last two years or so from The Apaches, an album that sees them maintain an “album a year” pace - since their 2016 debut. This is without a doubt their best yet - if you take surf, spaghetti western and Euro instrumentals, this would have elements of all three, but veer closer towards the spaghetti/Euro sounds. The songs are well-written, melodic and catchy, the members are all masters of their instruments, and the production is spot on. Undoubtedly one of the top releases of 2020!

Rhino closes its five-volume rock instrumentals series with an 18-track outing devoted to surf guitar. This fast-paced, prickly, and frequently exciting form may not be among the most diversified structurally, but if does offer some surging playing from its practitioners. They range from founding father Dick Dale to its most popular bands, the Surfaris, Belairs, Ventures, and Chantays. While not particularly a hardcore surf collection, this disc certainly outlines its virtues, and the tunes were long enough to display guitar proficiency, but short enough to prevent self-indulgence and repetition.

He had the high pomaded hair, almost like straight up with a little wave. He had all kinds of wild sunglasses, wild clothes, baggy pants. He used to like to play that plink-plink type of sound, the real high keys more than anything else. When you'd say you were going to see Esquerita there would be a lot of people who would want to go, because they knew they were in for a show. The parking lot at the old 'Safari Room' used to be packed, boy." It woulda sewed us Rock'n'Roll fans well if that raw energy Delle talked about made itself well on vinyl again, but from Esquerita's first post-Capitol side, 'Green Door' on Minit, the results were alarmingly tame. Despite the \/oola's outwardly wild, almost insane personality, his ‘60s records belie the true Esquerita craziness.
