And again….. Chowabunga!!! As part 1, you’ll get 30 more pieces, all handpicked from Rockin’ Chick’s fabulous youtube channel. Most come from unknown or forgotten combos (all uncomped, even in private compilations!), mixed with a few underrated tracks taken from the more familiar surf groups. Many of the tunes I’ve collected might not be considered genuine Surf tunes but incorporate the same surf spirit, even if they are about motorbikes, drag car races and beach parties. It all ends with a moody tune from Brian Wilson that sounds like a forerunner for the turning point in Surf music: Pet Sounds! I’m sure you’ll dig.
PS: unfortunately, Rockin’ Chick has announced that this will be the last charge of the Surf Tunes of his mega collection, and we’ll have to wait patiently for the next tide and incoming waves. Anyway, thanks a bunch mate, and I don’t give up from faith!
