The latest installment,
This review is from: It Came from The Beach: Surf Drag and Rockin' Intro's from Downey (Audio CD)
The "experts" i e the Rock Critics insisted that the British Invasion had seen off surf music but this is not quite right.
Surf revival apart it never really died as a valid form of American pop music-after all Wipeout charted again in the mid 60s and the hundreds of goups playing surf music had ever changing lineups as this CD shows.
It concentrates on the Downey label and its offshoots and is the 4th in the series.
Surf and hotrod music was probably the first real garage music
