3.0 out of 5 stars The Capitol years
Dick Dale's rawest, wildest sides were those he cut for Del-Tone between 1959 and 1963, though he can still cut up a storm. Between 1963 and 1964 he made five albums for Capitol, and it is from these that this budget CD has been compiled.

Dick Dale's rawest, wildest sides were those he cut for Del-Tone between 1959 and 1963, though he can still cut up a storm. Between 1963 and 1964 he made five albums for Capitol, and it is from these that this budget CD has been compiled. With the help of Hollywood's best session musicians it can't have taken too long to knock out these tracks, but if the results can be a bit formulaic they are nonetheless rousing and stormy. There are tracks from Surfer's Choice, King Of The Surf Guitar, Checkered Flag, Mr Eliminator and Summer Surf, but none of those chosen were also on singles apart from the title track. All are in stereo.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its not about hit singles, 25 May 2008
This review is from: Mr. Eliminator (Audio CD)
Named by his fellow surfers as the Father of Surf Music,Dick Dale is Richard Anthony Monsour,is half Lebanese and half Polish by birth and first entered the classic instrumental era in 1961 with Let's go trippin'-and which is NOT a drugs reference.His only chart entry was the lower top 100 one with Peppermint Man for Capitol who had distributed the earlier singles from Deltone.
Famous for building amplifiers able to cope with his powerful guitar sounds,Dale is a survivor who is now involved with environmental issues.He's not concerned with the fact that his instrummentals are no more than copies of other peoples' work but Break Time is ascloseasthis to King Curtis' Soul Twist.
He copied they copied eveybody copied because the basic chords of virtually all this music are the same unless previous compositions like Miserlou-which he made famous-are used.
It also takes as much talent to copy as it does to originate and all today's Neo Surf Bands copy Dick Dale
