This review is from: The Surf Set - 72 Original Tracks from the Surf and Hot Rod Era [3 CD BOX SET] (Audio CD)
I bought this triple cd set as I'd been looking for it for quite a while. My last set was faulty. This has all the surfing sounds you will ever need. The first CD starts with Dick Dale Surf Beat and it really feels as though the sea is there. The booklet which is included states that Dick Dale was the only musician who actually surfed. Plus there's the classic Beach Boys Surfin USA, Jan and Dean Surf City. Wipe out by the Surfaris and the humurous b side Surfer Joe, and this is the unedited version and has two extra verses. Plus of course there's Hot Rod sounds featured on the second CD such as Drag City by Jan and Dean, GTO by Ronnie and the Daytona's, Jan and Dean Bucket T, Beach Boys Little Deuce Coup, and the third CD has lesser known tracks such as Drive in by the Beach Boys, Astronauts Surf Party and my favourite track on the third CD The Tradewinds, New Tork's a Lonely Town, when you're the only surfer boy. Perhaps the third CD is not so good, but all the same there are so many good surfing tracks that you feel like getting out the ironing board and surfing on the carpet. Also has book which is stacked full of info. One for fans of surfing sounds.

This review is from: The Surf Set - 72 Original Tracks from the Surf and Hot Rod Era [3 CD BOX SET] (Audio CD)
If you're interested in Surf music or just curious to hear what else there was apart from Jan and Dean and the Beach Boys then this is the set for you. There are some amazing tracks on here, not just by the aforementioned giants of the Surf/Drag scene but bands and artists you will probably never heard of. The like of the Fantastic Baggys, The Rip Chords and The Astronauts will blow your mind. As the other reviewer pointed out, there is a real classic on here by the Tradewinds. It has to be heard to be believed.

it's quite a rate set now, but if you're lucky you can sometimes get this 72 track, triple disc set for under a tenner. Well worth the money.

Keep surfin'

5.0 out of 5 stars Your starter for hanging ten, 7 Aug 2012
This review is from: The Surf Set - 72 Original Tracks from the Surf and Hot Rod Era [3 CD BOX SET] (Audio CD)
This is a surf box ideal for the beginner as it covers both the classic instros and the vocals but doesn't include any of the surf revival.
At a price under a tenner its well worth seeking out as the company who issued it no longer operate
