All the surf music you will need,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.
