VA - Surf's Up, 75 Original Surfing Sounds [2015] (3 x CD's)

 

INSTRUMENTAL SURF POP

VA - Surf's Up, 75 Original Surfing Sounds [2015] (3 x CD's)

Surf's Up brings together 75 original recordings on 3CD's to revel in the golden age of surf music. Celebrating lost legends, rare classics and wild wipeouts with Dick Dale, Santo & Johnny, The Ventures, The Bel-Airs, Duane Eddy, Link Wray and many more.

This is a pretty brilliant and comprehensive set. Not sure about the title "Surfs Up" but it is an almost complete collection of the best instrumentals from the late 50's and early 60's in the style of The Shadows, including all the Shadows early hits plus Dick Dale, the Ventures etc. This is a wonderful collection of numbers, many of which you may have on separate albums / compilations, but I bet there are some here you won't have. It is a great assortment of 2 minute (or less) classics which inspired huge numbers of young lads to "take up thy guitar and rock" (Amazon)

    1. Hi Buzzcut9,
      I believe there was a surfboard available by cutting out the tokens from a breakfast cereal pack in the 70's... the cereal name escapes me.

      Cheers.
